Hello everyone,

I hope this email finds you all healthy.  I received a request to find any evidence about accidental fall risk or accidental fall prevention for elderly patients with COVID-19 who are ambulatory but staying in a closed off room for infection control. I  remember seeing a chat about accidental fall prevention for COVID-19 patients on the chat (I think it was this one), but my email search function is failing me.  Does anyone remember this thread, and if so, could you please forward it to me? If anyone has information on this topic that they could share, I would really appreciate that, too.

Thank you!
