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.
