Quispamsis Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


The administrators, nurses, orderlies, custodians, security guards, and other staff employed at nursing homes have an obligation to provide their facility’s residents with a duty of care. The elderly residents of nursing homes and their family members place their trust in the facility’s staff, believing that they will provide everyone in their care with a safe place to live. However, through a number of actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other kinds of wrongful conduct, a nursing home’s staff may fail to uphold the duty of care they owe their residents. When this happens, accidents resulting in serious injuries can occur.

Slips and falls are among the most common accidents that take place inside long-term care homes, and are often the result of the staff’s negligence. When a senior citizen is injured in a slip and fall accident, the consequences can be painful, debilitating, and in certain situations, fatal. 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

Not only can these injuries affect the long-term health of a senior nursing home resident, they could force them and their families to incur substantial financial losses, including expensive costs of medical care. Furthermore, the injuries sustained in nursing home accidents could even accelerate an elderly resident’s premature death. Family members who have entrusted their elderly loved ones into a nursing home’s care could suffer insurmountable emotional and financial losses because of the staff’s failure to provide a safe living environment.

Serious accidents at long-term care facilities often occur because of their staff members’ negligence. 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. Common examples of nursing home negligence that could lead to injurious 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
