EasyCall & Timely Medical Attention

62% of victims who don’t receive help within the first hour after a fall may not be able to live alone after recovery.

The longer the time before help arrives, the worse it gets:

2 – 3   Hours:   60% of those fall again within the following year.

4 – 5   Hours:   Hospitalization is certain. Other aliments may begin to affect the victim.

6 – 11 Hours:  90% of those who aren’t helped within 6 hours will have to live in a nursing home.

12-17 Hours:   Length of potential hospital stay doubles during this time. Health threats emerge: pressure sores, dehydration,                             hypothermia, possibility of death.

18-23 Hours:   Likelihood of full recovery is minuscule.

24     Hours:    The length of time on the floor may outweigh initial injuries as primary cause of death.

Call today so you and your loved ones can now be assured 24/7 with EasyCall at your side to provide immediate help.
