Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management

The following information was requested:


Please can you provide me information about litigation cases the NHS has faced in regards to patients falling and the cost impact this has had? Could this be broken down into injury? Where the fall occurred etc.?

[Which you clarified on 31 October 2019 as]

I am referring to inpatient falls in a hospital ward environment. Do you have information that breaks down where a fall occurred or cause of fall e.g. around a hospital bed? and the litigation cost specifically relating to that?
