Long-term Care

Approximately 1,800 fatal falls occur each year among United States Long-Term Care (LTC) residents. In addition, the total annual cost of falls among adults aged 65 and older, including fall-related mortalities, in the year 2000 was over $19 billion and is estimated to increase to over $54.9 billion by 2020. The greatest costs among older Americans are incurred upon hospitalization ($22,260); however, costs for treatment in emergency rooms and outpatient settings can be as high as $5,040.
