Common Injuries To Residents In New York Nursing Homes.
When seniors suffer falls in nursing homes, the results are potentially catastrophic. A broken hip can keep an elder bedridden for months, increasing the danger of bedsores. When a senior has a fall, it’s important to investigate the circumstances to determine whether the facility was using appropriate protocols for the resident. Allowing an elder to wander the halls or lie in bed with the side railings down could amount to negligence for which the facility is liable. Our nursing home attorneys investigate all manner of harm to residents, including:
- Bone fractures
- Medication errors
- Oxygen deficiency
- Physical assault
- Unreasonable use of restraints
- Unhygienic conditions
- Verbal abuse
- Wrongful death
