Nursing Home Falls

Elderly residents in nursing homes often have difficulty walking and need to be assisted and monitored by staff members. When nursing homes fail to provide this level of care, elderly residents can fall down and suffer head injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, bruises and other injuries. Common causes of nursing home falls include obstacles in hallways, food and water on floors, tears in carpets and other hazards.

Restraint Injuries

Improper use of restraints can also lead to falling injuries and other serious injuries. Restraints can be physical, such as lap belts and bed rails, or chemical, including sedatives. Restraint injuries generally result from one or two types of error:

  • Improper use of restraints: Examples include fastening a restraint too tightly or using a restraint that is the wrong type or size for the patient. This type of error can lead to loss of circulation, chafing, lacerations and even strangulation.
  • Failure to restrain: When restraints are needed but not used, it can result in serious injury. Residents who are prone to wandering off are especially at risk when staff members fail to properly restrain or monitor them.

Whether your loved one suffered a falling or restraint injury, an experienced nursing home neglect lawyer can help you explore your legal options. We are dedicated advocates for the elderly and have a proven record of success obtaining results for the injured and neglected.
