Sydney Mines Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer

Negligence in nursing homes can feel like a deep betrayal of trust. When the people hired to keep our elderly loved ones safe fail to do so, serious, injury-causing, potentially fatal accidents can occur. In Sydney Mines, the staff at long-term care facilities owe a duty of care to the residents they serve. If administrators, nurses, orderlies, security personnel, custodians, or other nursing home staff members fail to take reasonable precautions to ensure their residents’ safety and an injurious accident takes place as a result, they may be considered negligent.

Common examples of negligent behaviour that often leads to accidental physical injuries in nursing homes include:

  • Lack of supervision
  • Failure to provide mobility assistance
  • Prescription medication causing drowsiness
  • Hazardous maintenance issues
  • Unlock doors to restricted areas
  • And more

When nursing home staff members shirk the duty of care they owe their residents, the senior citizens they care for could be injured in slip and fall accidents. In fact, the overwhelming causes of most seniors’ injuries requiring hospitalization across the country are slips and falls. Seniors involved in even mild slip and fall accidents often sustain injuries. Because of their age and potential fragility, even a moderate injury can substantially impact a senior’s quality of life.

Common injuries sustained in nursing home slip and fall 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

Depending on the severity of the injuries they have sustained and its overall effects on a senior’s quality of life, injured nursing home accident victims and their families may be required to go to great expense to adequately address the injuries they sustained. Because of a nursing home staff member’s negligence, seniors with limited incomes could be required to pay for extensive medical treatment, surgeries, equipment, lifestyle adjustments, and more. The physical, emotional, and financial repercussions of an injury-causing nursing home accident can be overwhelming for elderly residents of long-term care facilities.
