Falls in Nursing Homes
If your elder or senior loved on suffers a fall resulting in a fracture or injury in a nursing home, this can have a significant impact on their functional ability and quality of life.
Residents in nursing homes are at a significantly increased risk of falling since they are often easily disoriented, elderly and disabled.
Given their often frail medical condition, the possibility of such falls must be monitored. Many nursing home facilities or other elder care locations don’t do a good job of this.
If you think your loved one has suffered an unnecessary fall or injury, call us at Carabin Shaw. Call 1.800.862.1260.
Many falls at nursing homes by residents could have been avoided. Sometimes general policies of the facility itself, such as under staffing or poor written procedures, by the facility itself can be a major factor in a fall.
Nursing homes and other facilities that offer elder/senior care have an obligation to take the proper precautions to make sure that the facility has preventative measures are in place and is free of hazards that could harm your loved one.
Call Carabin Shaw, we will investigate and review potential lawsuits for fractured bones and other injuries caused by falls, as well as other forms of neglect and abuse.
