Providing Legal Remedies Regarding Excessive Restraint In Nursing Homes

State law requires the use of minimal restraints. Nursing home residents, especially those who are struggling with mental and physical issues, may need to be restrained for their own safety, as well as the safety of staff and other residents. However, when restraints are used improperly, residents can suffer serious wounds and injuries.

At the New York law firm of Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we have been handling nursing home abuse and neglect cases throughout our over 60 years of practice. Our lawyers are dedicated to helping clients take action against nursing homes that have negligently caused injuries to their loved ones through improper use of restraints. Contact us today to learn more about the services we provide to our clients and their nursing home-bound loved ones.

Improper Restraints

If nursing homes improperly use restraints on residents, they may be held liable for the injuries that result from the restraints. We handle cases involving:

  • Medical restraints: Though medical restraints may be needed in certain situations, they can also be used to keep residents subdued, in their beds, and thus needing less help or attention from staff. This type of abuse is illegal and should never be tolerated. Facilities may use psychotropic drugs, tranquilizers (such as Haldol), sedatives and other drugs to medically restrain and immobilize patients.
  • Physical restraints: Nursing homes need to keep proper documentation when physical restraints are used. However, they need to be approved restraints that are designed to help maintain the resident's safety instead of for the convenience of the staff.

Excessive Restraint Injuries

Excessive restraints can leave serious wounds that can cause permanent injuries. Whether they are open wounds from physical restraints that become infected or a reaction to a chemical restraint that was used, restrained nursing home residents can suffer for an extended period of time. It is essential that restraints are only used when absolutely necessary, to ensure the resident's safety and the safety of the staff.
