Experienced Representation To Help Recover Compensation For Nursing Home Fall Injuries
A serious but often overlooked risk to seniors is falling. Seniors typically suffer from diminished coordination and musculature that can put them at risk of falling. Seniors are also more likely to suffer more serious injury after a fall than younger individuals. They also heal less quickly.
Nursing homes are aware of these risks and know that they need to take great care to ensure that the seniors in their care are protected from the possibility of falling and injuring themselves. Common tools that a nursing home can use to help prevent falls include:
- Bed or chair alarms
- Bed rails
- Low beds
Simply watching patients or helping them to the restroom is often enough to avoid a fall.
