Fall Prevention

PALS Tip

PALS Tip Make friends with your neighbors. Oftentimes, we don’t have family nearby when medics and others need relevant information for our care. A neighbor can be responsible for passing along the names and phone numbers of family members in order to help move professional care givers along smoothly. Also, Boswell Hospital has Vials of Life in which pertinent information can be stored to direct care givers to call doctors, legal representatives and family members when necessary.
