Miramichi Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


The residents of nursing homes and their family members have the right to feel safe. Nursing homes in and around Miramichi should provide their residents with a comfortable and dignified living experience, free from the risk of physical harm. Residents and their families should be able to rest comfortably with the knowledge that the facility’s staff will provide them with the utmost care, attention, and protection.

Unfortunately, not all nursing homes effectively provide the level of care required of their staff. When a long-term care facility’s administrators, nurses, orderlies, custodians, security guards, and other staff neglect the duty of care owed to their vulnerable residents, accidents can occur.

Nursing home accidents are often the direct result of their staff’s negligence. Negligence in long-term care facilities can manifest itself through a number of actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other types of wrongful conduct wherein staff members responsible for ensuring their residents’ safety fail to uphold their duty of care. Common examples of negligence in nursing homes that often leads to serious accidents 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

If a nursing home’s staff fails to fulfill their duty of care to their facility’s residents and an injurious accident takes place as a result, the staff may be considered negligent. In these cases, the nursing home may be liable for financially compensating injured accident victims for damages they incurred as the result of the injuries they sustained.

Owing to the advanced ages and declining medical conditions of nursing home residents, accidents in long-term care facilities can cause seniors to sustain serious injuries. Seniors are the demographic most likely to be involved in a slip and fall accident, as well as the age group most likely to sustain severe injuries as a result. Common injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents in nursing homes 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

In addition to the prolonged pain and discomfort often associated with injuries sustained in nursing home accidents, depending on the severity of their newly acquired medical conditions, the negligence of a nursing home’s staff may be directly linked to a resident’s premature death. Because of the staff’s failure to keep their senior relatives safe, family members could suffer the untimely loss of their beloved elderly loved one.

When nursing home negligence leads to injury-causing accidents, senior residents and their families could feel the long-term emotional and financial impacts for years to come. In fact, many seniors injured in nursing home accidents incur high costs of necessary medical care, invasive surgeries, and lifestyle adjustments, often affecting their family members as well.
