Tracadie-Sheila Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


The staff at nursing homes in Tracadie-Sheila owe a duty of care to their residents. Both the residents of long-term care facilities and their loved ones place their trust in the administrators, nurses, orderlies, caretakers, security personnel, and other staff members overseeing daily life at nursing homes. Unfortunately, that trust can be undermined when staff members neglect their duty of care. When nursing home staff engage in negligent behaviour, accidents can occur in which residents sustain serious injuries.

Negligence in nursing homes can manifest itself in various forms. Whenever staff members fail to uphold the duty of care they owe to the home’s elderly residents and an injurious accident occurs as a result, the at-fault staff members may be considered negligent.

For example, if a nursing home resident is prescribed medication causing imbalance, dizziness, or drowsiness, without proper ambulatory assistance, after taking their pills they could slip and fall, sustaining severe injuries in the process. The nursing home’s staff have a responsibility to know the side-effects of their residents’ medication, and provide appropriate support when necessary. When their failure to do so causes an injurious accident, the at-fault staff members could be considered negligent.

Other examples of negligence in nursing homes that could potentially cause an injurious 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

When senior citizens are involved in slip and fall accidents, the physical ramifications can be disastrous. Due to their advanced age and potential fragility, even seemingly benign accidents could have long-lasting, painful consequences. Seniors often sustain broken or fractured bones and other musculoskeletal injuries as the result of falls. The injuries sustained by seniors in slips and falls could require complicated, invasive surgeries. However, even after undergoing all necessary medical treatments, their movement and mobility could be greatly impacted. Injured nursing home residents and their families may go to great expense trying to adequately recover from their injuries. Unfortunately, even after going to great lengths, their quality of life may never fully return to normal.
