Edmundston Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer

Nursing homes in and around Edmundston are meant to keep their residents safe from physical harm. As organizations that provide necessary care to the elderly, these institutions and the people they employ have a responsibility to provide comfortable, dignified, secure residential experiences. Unfortunately, if the leadership, administrators, or staff members of these long-term care facilities behave in a negligent manner, accidents causing serious injuries could easily occur.

Across the nation, senior citizens are the demographic most likely to be involved in slip and fall accidents, as well as the age group most likely to sustain injuries requiring hospitalization as the result of a fall. The same accident that causes a younger person to sustain negligible injuries like mild bruising can have devastating consequences for an older adult. Seniors who are injured in a slip and fall could require lengthy periods of hospitalization, complicated invasive surgeries, and significant lifestyle adjustments in order to cope with their injuries. Nursing home residents injured in slips and falls can permanently lose their mobility or their ability to function independently. They can also lose their lives as the result of injuries they have sustained.

Some examples of injuries commonly sustained in nursing home accidents include:

  • Broken hips
  • Fractured bones
  • Sprains and strains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • And more

The residents of nursing homes often require ambulatory assistance from staff members, especially after being administered medication causing drowsiness or dizziness. If the nursing home’s staff fails to provide a resident with necessary assistance, the elderly resident could slip and fall, sustaining severe injuries in the process. This is just one of many examples of nursing home negligence that frequently leads to injurious accidents in long-term care facilities in the Edmundston area. Whenever staff members fail to adequately fulfill the duty of care they owe their residents and an injury-causing accident ensues as a result, the nursing home and its staff may be considered negligent. Other common examples of nursing home negligence that often leads to a serious accident include:

  • Lack of supervision
  • Failure to provide mobility assistance
  • Hazardous maintenance issues
  • Uncleared ice or snow in outdoor areas
  • Unlocked doors to restricted areas
  • Improperly prescribed medications
  • And more
