Hot off the presses at Medscape:

May 29, 2012 — Exercise or physical therapy, along with vitamin D supplementation, are the best medicine for fall prevention among older adults, according to a report by the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF). The new clinical guideline was published online May 28 in the Annals of Internal Medicine.


In the hospital
We could easily prevent falls
If we secured everyone in bed,
No more busted hips
Fractured elbows
Or dented heads,


We could float them all in water
They couldn't fall, nor harm their skin,
If only I could patent this
I'd be more famous
Than Wilhelm Karl Grimm.
