Kentville Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


Accidents in nursing homes can have tragic consequences. More than any other demographic, senior citizens are prone to injuries sustained as the result of a slip and fall accident. However, when seniors reside in supervised long-term care facilities designed to provide them with a comfortable and safe lifestyle, serious injury-causing accidents should not occur.

Elderly residents of nursing homes and their family members should be able to trust that their facility’s nurses, orderlies, administrators, security personnel, custodians, and other staff members will keep the people in their care safe from harm. Unfortunately, many nursing home accidents that culminate in serious injuries are the result of its staff’s negligence.

People who work at nursing homes owe the facility’s residents a duty of care. By performing the duties of their jobs in a considerate, professional, safety-conscious manner, nursing home staff members fulfill the duty of care they owed the people in their charge. When a nursing home staff member neglects their duty of care and an injury-causing accident occurs as a direct result, they may be considered negligent.

Common examples of nursing home negligence that could cause an elderly resident to sustain injuries in an 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

The wrongful actions of nursing home staff members can have profound consequences for injured accident victims. Depending on the severity of the injuries they have sustained, injured nursing home accident survivors may require extensive physical therapy, hospitalization, and even complicated invasive surgeries. However, even after receiving necessary medical treatment, elderly accident survivors may never truly recover from their injuries. Instead, they will be forced to live out their remaining years in pain and discomfort, all because the people hired to care for them behaved in a negligent manner.

In addition to the physical trauma and emotional distress often developed in relation to a severe physical injury, elderly accident survivors could incur substantial financial losses because of negligence in their nursing home. Since most residents of long-term care facilities have limited monetary resources and strictly fixed incomes, in order to afford the necessary costs associated with the injuries they have sustained, their family members may be required to take on the financial burden.
