Prevention of Falls
Help us help you stay safe
Our staff wants you to be safe while you are in the hospital. Preventing a fall is key to a safe hospital visit:
Condition H (Help)
UPMC Altoona is dedicated to making the hospital a safe place for patients. We are leading the national focus on eliminating problems that adversely affect care. To help ensure that we provide the best care to our patients, we have Condition H.
Use Condition H if a noticeable medical change occurs and you feel the health care team is not recognizing the concern.
Call 4000 from any hospital telephone and put on the patientís call light.
The operator will ask for caller identification, room number, patient name and patient concern. A team of medical professionals will arrive at the room to assess the situation.
