Head Injuries Are Common In Nursing Homes

We entrust our older family members to nursing homes in the hopes that they will be carefully protected. When our trust is broken, it's often hard to know what to do next.

One thing you can do is turn to Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, in New York. Our attorneys provide compassionate and vigorous representation to families who have experienced medical negligence and nursing home neglect. Over the past 60 years, we have obtained six- and seven-figure awards for our clients in these types of complex cases.

Statistics Show That Your Loved Ones May Be At High Risk

According to a study featured in the Canadian Medical Association Journal in 2013, falls cause the majority of all head injuries in older adults. The study looked at videotapes of 133 nursing home residents who suffered 227 falls, analyzing the data. One of the most interesting facts revealed by this study was that 37 percent of the time a resident fell, his or her head hit the floor or another object. This was true whether or not the resident extended his or her hands to break the fall.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) sheds additional light on the problem. According to the CDC, between 50 and 75 percent of all nursing home residents suffer a fall every year.

When you put these statistics together, the implications are profound. These findings mean that the odds of your loved one suffering a nursing home fall are very high, and more than three out of 10 times he or she falls, a head injury will likely result.

What Our Law Firm Can Do In Response

Not all head injuries in nursing homes are the result of negligence. However, some are. In these cases, you can seek financial compensation. You can also help make the nursing home a safer place for other residents by holding the negligent parties accountable for their carelessness.
