Do you have details of another report in the public domain about falls at Forth Valley Royal Hospital?

email: info@fallsinhospital.com


You are also welcome to contact this website about anything else, such as:

  • if you are a patient with experience of falls care prevention issues
  • if you are a concerned relative
  • or if you have any questions about the website and its content.


The purpose of this website is to collect and publish links to all public domain reports, articles and other documents that relate to falls after failures of care at Forth Valley Royal Hospital.

  • If you are a senior nurse or manager from NHS Forth Valley and want to give details of training that nurses receive, how this is assessed, how nurses are supported...and why falls have taken place after repeated failings of care then you are also welcome to make contact.


  • This website is happy to report NHS Forth Valley's falls care training protocols, practices and assessment of nurses' competence: but the question that follows is why then have failures of falls prevention and post falls nursing care gone on to occur so often and so regularly in the relatively short life of Forth Valley Royal Hospital?



The aim of this website is to gather verified information that will help enable change to create a safer environment for patients at risk of falls who are cared for at Forth Valley Royal Hospital.

It is also to encourage appropriate training and working practices that mean failures of falls related nursing care no longer take place at Forth Valley Royal Hospital.

Such failures are - in terms of reports of complaints upheld by the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman - much higher than most other Scottish hospitals.

This is an independent website which aims to collect and publish links to information in the public domain relating to falls that have followed failures of nursing care at Forth Valley Royal Hospital and within NHS Forth Valley.

This website is not connected with NHS Forth Valley or Forth Valley Royal Hospital - but it would like to know why patients keep falling, are injured - and sometimes go on to die - after falls on wards where nursing protocols have not been observed properly.
