- •This study focused on location in the home where fall-related traumatic brain injury in the elderly occurs.
- •The oldest group (age 85 and/or over) was more associated with in-hospital mortality than the young-old (age 65 to 74).
- •In the oldest group, bathroom, stairs, and outdoor space were more dangerous than room, living room, and kitchen.
