Truro Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer

The staff at nursing homes have a responsibility to provide the elderly residents in their care with a comfortable, dignified, and safe living experience. When people make the difficult decision to relocate themselves or beloved family members to a local nursing home, they expect the staff to fulfill their required duties of care.

Unfortunately, through a number of actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other forms of wrongful conduct, nursing home staff members often put the residents in their care at risk of physical injury. When a long-term care facility’s administrators, nurses, orderlies, security guards, custodians, or other staff members neglect their duties of care, serious, injury-causing accidents can occur.

Most injuries in nursing homes are the result of slip and fall accidents. When staff members fail to uphold their duties of care, slip and fall accidents are more likely to occur. As a matter of fact, throughout the country, slip and fall accidents are the leading cause of seniors’ injuries requiring hospitalization. Due to their advanced age and declining medical conditions, slips and falls in nursing homes can cause elderly residents to sustain serious, even life-threatening injuries. These injures often 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

The physical, emotional, and financial repercussions of an injury-causing nursing home accident can be overwhelming for elderly residents of long-term care facilities. Because of the injuries they have sustained in nursing home accidents, seniors with limited incomes could be required to pay for extensive medical treatment, surgeries, equipment, lifestyle adjustments, and more. Residents and their family members may endure the adverse effects of these accidents for years to come, all because of the nursing home staff’s negligence.

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
