Hendrich II Validation
Predict and Prevent Injurious Falls
New validation study moves beyond environmental factors to target modifiable risk factors.
The latest Hendrich II Fall Risk Model® validation study, published in 2020, proves environmental factors alone are not enough to prevent patient falls. Healthcare teams must incorporate evidence-based interventions along with their validated fall risk assessment tool in order to prevent injurious falls. This will require standard, policy, and practice changes to traditional fall programs in many acute care facilities.

Hendrich II Fall Risk Model® Validation Studies
The Hendrich II Fall Risk Model® has been validated in numerous studies and has repeatedly shown its ability to predict and prevent injurious falls in diverse populations, hospitals, and large healthcare systems. This validity and reliability is why it is used and integrated into the Electronic Health Record (EHR) in more than 1,000 sites of care.
