In brief: Just ask her if...

It is important to ask her on how, when, where and why she fell? Does she has any symptoms prior to and after fall? If she develops worsening pain or unable to ambulate, go to a local hospital for evaluation.
Otherwise, consult her primary care physician about fall risk.
