Falls In Nursing Homes

Falls in Nursing Homes

Our Bronx County Nursing Home Lawyers Advocate for Victims

Nursing homes are obligated to provide a specific standard of care for their residents. This standard of care extends to providing appropriate measures for preventing falls. Bones become brittle, medication can affect you. People slip and fall. We understand that. So should your facility. They have a responsibility to remove obstacles, provide railings and eliminate other hazards.

At Adams Law Firm, P.C., our Rockland county nursing home attorney recognizes the prevalence of nursing home injuries from falls. Insufficient training and staffing are often the most common causes of preventable situations. Improper staffing and training is negligence. The consequences of nursing home abuse can be fatal.

Typical Situations for Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Accidents

Perhaps more than half of all nursing home residents experience a fall at some point during their stay. Whether they fall in their room, bathroom or the hallway is not the issue. With proper levels of staffing and appropriate training, most falls are preventable.

We understand how to evaluate you or your loved one’s fall. We examine the situation to help determine and prove liability. We have experience including:

  • Improper bed rails or restraints
  • Negligent floor maintenance
  • Insufficient chair padding for unstable residents
  • Failure to respond to alarms
  • Failure to respond to bathroom call lights
  • Malnutrition and dehydration

We also understand the devastating effects an injury may cause. A wide range of severe or permanent conditions can include:

  • Internal bleeding
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord trauma
