NURSING HOME FALLS

When a senior is injured in a fall in a nursing home, the staff often passes off the injury as an inevitable effect of aging. However, many falls could have been prevented.At Rob King & Associates, Trial Lawyers, we hold nursing homes accountable when they neglect or abuse residents. We represent injured nursing home residents throughout Indianapolis and the surrounding area.

WAS THE FALL PREVENTABLE?

Some seniors suffer injuries in nursing homes despite the best efforts of staff to provide a safe and caring environment. In other cases, injuries are the direct result of a nursing home’s decision to maintain minimal staffing levels.

Here are some examples of negligent actions that can lead to serious injuries in falls:

  • Over- or under medicating residents
  • Failure to monitor patients following medical procedures or medication changes
  • Improperly fitted walkers and wheelchairs
  • Failure to assist a resident in the bathroom
  • Failure to clean up spills
  • Assault

The consequences of a fall can be devastating for a senior. It can lead to broken bones, a loss of mobility, and a downward spiral in your loved one’s health.

If your loved one was injured in a fall, Rob King and his team can discuss the accident with you and the nursing home staff. If the evidence supports a personal injury claim against the nursing home, we will take the proper legal action on behalf of your loved one.
