Falls in nursing homes are the most common cause of injury among elderly patients. Because of this, nursing homes are required to have fall preventative care plans in place. If a nursing home fails to use appropriate fall interventions and a patient or resident fall and is injured, it is considered nursing home neglect.
If you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a fall at a nursing home, it's important to speak with an experienced nursing home fall lawyer who can help you understand your legal rights and options.
At Curan & Ahlers, we've been helping Westchester County and White Plains residents recover compensation for their injuries and in wrongful death cases since 1986. Contact us today for a free, confidential, and compassionate case consultation.
Why do nursing home patients fall?
There are a number of reasons why nursing home patients fall. Some of the most common include:
Lack of fall preventative care plan
Poorly trained or understaffed nursing home staff
Unsafe conditions in the nursing home, such as cluttered hallways or slippery floors
Medication side effects
Undiagnosed or untreated medical conditions
What are the consequences of a nursing home fall?
Falls can cause serious injuries, such as hip fractures, head injuries, and even wrongful death. In addition to the physical pain and suffering caused by the fall, patients and their families may also suffer emotionally and financially.
Are nursing home falls preventable?
Yes, falls in nursing homes are preventable. If a nursing home has a well-designed fall prevention plan in place and its staff is properly trained to implement that plan, the risk of falls can be greatly reduced. For instance, an unwitnessed fall in nursing home should never happen.
The reason you or your loved one is in a nursing home is because they are in a condition where they need assistance. The nursing home is providing professional medical care. If they allow you or your loved one to fall, they have neglected their duty of care.
Why pursue a lawsuit against a nursing home after a fall?
When a nursing home fall causes serious injury or death, the nursing home may be liable for the damages suffered. This may include medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, and funeral costs. In some cases, a nursing home fall lawsuit may also result in punitive damages, which are designed to punish the nursing home for its negligence.
Besides recovering compensation for damages that you or your loved one suffered, bringing a nursing home fall lawsuit against a nursing home facility that has allowed a patient to fall also helps bring the issue to light. By pursuing the issue, you may be able to ensure that other people don't suffer the same fate.
