“…Falls, defined as an unintended event that results in change of the starting position of the individual to the same level or lower, are an important cause of mortality, morbidity, disability, and hospitalizations in the elderly population [1][2][3] . A situation was observed within this population: women are the ones who fall the most 2 ; 30% fall at least once a year and, out of these, 50% fall very often 4 .…”

“…That said, these proximal femoral fractures in the elderly present different rates of mortality that vary according to advanced age, masculine gender, higher number of comorbidities, and severity [5]. In Brazil, the mortality was 32% and the chance of death from falling in the elderly is significantly higher for females, age group above 69 years and elderly people with white skin color, widowed or single [6]. Performing the surgical procedure as soon as possible may decrease hospital length of staying and mortality in these patients [6][7].…”

“…Estudos revelam que quando as quedas não causam morte ou lesões, o indivíduo pode desenvolver limitação na qualidade de vida, levando ao receio e à limitação nas atividades de vida diária, estimulando o confinamento e a depressão (ROSA et al, 2015;FECHINE;TROMPIERI, 2012). Estudos mostram que a prevenção é a melhor forma de evitar as quedas, embora, o Brasil ainda necessite de melhorias em seus programas de prevenção, diferente de outros países que dão prioridade a esse fator de risco que influencia diretamente na saúde da população (ROSA et al, 2015;FECHINE;TROMPIERI, 2012).…”
