Slip-and-Fall Injuries

Nursing Home Slip-And-Fall Injury Attorneys

Nursing home injuries can occur for many reasons, including medications errors, a lack of hydration, bedsores and numerous other areas. The most common injuries, though, are injuries from slip and falls.

Creating a safe environment in which nursing home residents are safe from slip, trip and fall injuries involves following simple safety guidelines, such as:

  • Monitoring exits so that residents don't leave the safety of the facility
  • The use of bed rails for vulnerable residents
  • The escorting of residents to restrooms
  • Responding quickly to the need for help once a fall occurs

When these and other guidelines are followed systematically, slip-and-fall injuries are rare. When nursing home staff members fail to observe these guidelines, slip-and-fall injuries happen all too frequently.
