Nursing Home Fall Accidents
Legally, a nursing home cannot restrain nursing home residents just to “keep them put.” Thus, it is important that nurses and staff carefully monitor residents to avoid them walking around and potentially falling and hurting themselves. In addition, staff members need to be properly trained in helping a resident get out of wheelchairs, climb in and out of bed, assist with showers and other day-to-day tasks. Failure to have proper training can lead to someone essentially dropping a resident as they try to assist.
Unfortunately, negligence, understaffing and improper training too often lead to nursing home falling injuries and accidental death.
- Was your loved allowed to wander unsupervised?
- Should your loved one have had assistance going to the bathroom or taking a shower?
- Should your loved one have been using a walker or a wheelchair?
Such questions will begin our investigation into how the accident occurred and who is at fault. We also consider the extent of the injuries and long-term effects. Our goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients and their families.
