Injuries From Falls in Nursing Homes
Greensboro Elder Abuse Lawyer Standing Up for Victims' Rights
Injuries from falls in nursing homes are, sadly, a common and tragic occurrence.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately
1,800 nursing home residents die every year as a result of a fall-related
injury. Those who survive frequently suffer head injuries and hip fractures,
which may never heal properly.
How could this happen?
Many nursing home residents fall when they are being moved, but falls are
often attributed to
improper staffing issues. Due to the lack of proper staffing, nursing home residents do not receive
the close monitoring they need to ensure their safety. These residents
are often left alone and unattended for long periods of time, which could
prompt them to get up on their own, resulting in a fall. Or sometimes
nursing home staff have not received proper training and do not know how
to properly handle residents or prevent them from falling. Whatever the
case, this negligent treatment is inexcusable.
