Negligence Causes Nursing Home Falls

While falls can occur in the absence of negligence, nursing home negligence is responsible for many resident and patient falls.  Our loved ones enter nursing homes because they have special personal and medical needs.  When nursing home policies and staff do not adequate provide for those needs, falls and injuries can occur.

Our experienced nursing home injury lawyers currently offer free consultations regarding all nursing home fall injuries.  Common causes of nursing home falls include:

  • Failing to Provide Bed or Bath Railings
  • Broken or Damaged Medical Equipment, including Wheelchairs
  • Unsanitary Conditions
  • Spills, Puddles, and Other Walkway Hazards
  • Neglect or Inadequate Supervision
  • Medication Errors
  • Understaffing or Inadequate Training
