Nursing homes must use proper fall prevention techniques

Anyone who falls is at risk for an injury; however, when that person is an elderly person, health factors like weaker bones can increase the chance of him or her suffering from an injury. Elderly nursing home residents are at risk of falling, which means that the nursing homes must take appropriate steps to help prevent the falls that might occur.

Rehabilitation for a brain injury starts in the hospital

When you suffer from a traumatic brain injury, you usually need to seek medical care. If the TBI has caused significant issues, you will likely find yourself in the hospital. There are several things that will happen when you go into the hospital. Your medical team will work to get you stabilized and then they will work toward a diagnosis.

Is your loved one at risk of a fall injury in a nursing home?

One reason individuals opt to have their older family members live in a nursing home is that they are not safe living at home any more. But safety isn't guaranteed in a nursing home environment, either, making it important to choose a quality facility.

Nursing malpractice is a very serious issue with lots of causes

Nurses are usually tasked with a host of duties when they work in any setting. Being able to provide proper patient care must be a top concern for every nurse. This means learning how to prioritize tasks, such as taking care of a patient's medical needs before assisting with comfort measures like bringing cups of water. It also means having open communication with the rest of the medical team and keeping a close eye on the patient.
