Do you have a parent or grandparent who was seriously injured in a fall in a Columbus or Central Ohio nursing home? It is unfortunate how many seniors suffer head injuries, hip fractures or a broken neck or back in falls each year throughout nursing homes or extended care facilities in Ohio. A fall can happen for many reasons, but in most cases it is simply a matter of neglect. Nursing homes are required by law to maintain experienced and certified nursing staff, but many simply cannot and do not have enough nurses or technicians to monitor patients and provide adequate supervision.
Open or closed head trauma, broken / fractured hips or fractures in the neck and spine can have serious and permanent long term ramifications for seniors. These injuries can leave them permanently disabled and significantly impact the cost of taking care them, while reducing their enjoyment and quality of life.
