Our Goal: To Prevent Harm The most important goal for the Collaborative Center for Clinical Care Improvement (C4I) Patient Falls Group is to prevent any serious injury should a fall occur. While our goal is also to reduce the number of patient falls, it is especially important to prevent any serious harm to the patient. During calendar year 2006 (January-December), we accomplished our most important goal - there were no serious injuries related to any patient falls that occurred in the hospital during the past twelve months.
