Gap Analysis

check boxes and person to symbolize gap analysis


A gap analysis is an assessment of the current state of fall risk reduction practices in your facility compared to evidence-based best practices.


Completing a gap analysis allows your fall team to identify areas where your current practices are in alignment with best practices, and opportunities for improvement.


Select a tool to conduct a gap analysis. Consider information you need to gather ahead of time to help your team complete the gap analysis. Include input from multiple team members to help answer each item as accurately and honestly as possible.
