Port Hawkesbury Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer

Negligence in nursing homes can lead frail, elderly residents to sustain serious injuries in traumatic accidents. Depending on the manner in which their accident occurred and the severity of the injuries they sustained, the accident victims injured as a result of negligence in their long-term care facility could face physical pain and discomfort for the rest of their lives. Accidents in nursing homes could also accelerate an injured resident’s premature death.

The people who work at nursing homes owe a duty of care to the senior citizens in their charge. Unfortunately, through a myriad of wrongful actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other forms of negligence, the staff employed at nursing homes could neglect their duties of care, thus endangering the safety and well-being of the home’s residents.

Negligence in nursing homes could manifest in a number of ways, including lack of supervision. If left unsupervised, residents could wander outside the facility or into restricted areas where they may be at risk of injuries.

If a nursing home resident takes medication that causes dizziness or drowsiness, after it has been administered, they should be provided with ambulatory assistance. If their nurses or orderlies do not help them safely get to their destination, the resident experiencing side effects of their prescription could slip, fall, and become seriously injured.

Slip and fall accidents at nursing homes are often caused by the negligence of its custodians, maintenance staff, or the administrators who oversee them. Recently mopped floors, loose handrails, poor lighting, improperly cleared ice and snow in the home’s outdoor areas, and other insufficiently addressed maintenance issues could pose significant dangers to nursing home residents who risk sustaining injuries in a fall.

When the negligence of a nursing home’s staff members causes an elderly resident to slip and fall, the accident victim typically sustains a number of injuries of varying degrees of severity. These injuries frequently 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

Injured victims of nursing home accidents often feel the adverse effects of their newly acquired medical conditions for the rest of their lives. The injuries sustained by seniors may require complicated, invasive surgeries and other medical treatments that may further impact their overall quality of life.
