Legal Accountability For Falls And Fractures In Nursing Homes

Nursing homes need to take every possible precaution to prevent their residents from falling and becoming injured. While many nursing homes do their duty to their residents and protect them at all costs, many are negligent, resulting in repeated falls and fractures that irreparably injure the residents.

Your loved ones are important to our lawyers at the New York law firm of Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP. We do not take nursing home abuse or neglect cases lightly. Our firm works hard to see that the nursing home and any individuals are held responsible for the negligence that resulted in your loved one's repeated falls and fractures. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation and learn more about how we can stand up for your family member's rights.

Nursing Home Fall Injuries

Whether the fall is from a bed onto the floor or a slip-and-fall over an object in a hallway or another situation, a fall for an elderly individual can be devastating. It is even more difficult for them to recover from injuries, due to their age and health. We handle all types of fall and fracture cases for families whose nursing home-resident loved ones have sustained injuries such as:

  • Broken legs
  • Broken arms and wrists
  • Broken hips
  • Head injuries
  • Neck and back injuries

Repeated Falls

When a resident experiences repeated falls, it is a clear indication that something is wrong. Either a health condition is not being properly diagnosed or monitored, or the resident is not being properly assisted. Regardless, the nursing home is responsible, especially if the resident has fallen before. High-fall-risk patients must be identified and monitored when moving in order to prevent repeated falls.

Proper Safety Equipment And Protocols

The use of safety equipment is essential in preventing falls. Proper use of bedrails, walkers or other devices can be crucial for all individuals. Staff should always be vigilant to ensure the safety of residents.
