Nursing Home Liability
The primary role of nursing homes is to provide care and attention for the unique needs of their elderly residents. If an elderly person falls while in the care of a nursing home, and this fall can be traced back to some kind of negligence or abuse by the staff or an unsafe environment, the nursing home could be liable for the damages the elderly resident suffered.
Nursing home falls can result from:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Unsafe stairways or lack of proper stair rails
- Lack of handles in hallways
- Unsafe bath and shower environments
- Improper methods of moving or repositioning a resident
- Lack of proper supervision
- Over-sedated patients
- Untrained staff
