Yarmouth Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


The elderly residents of nursing homes are entitled to live in comfort, dignity, and safety. The staff at long-term care facilities owe a duty of care to the residents of their nursing home. If nurses, administrators, security guards, custodians, or other staff members neglect the duty of care they are required to provide, serious accidents could happen. Accidents in nursing homes happen all too often, and they are frequently caused by the negligence of their staff.

In Yarmouth, seniors are most likely to sustain injuries that require hospitalization in a slip and fall accident. Owing to their age and declining medical conditions, seniors who are involved in slips and falls might be more likely to sustain serious injuries as a result of their accident. These injuries 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

Depending on the severity of the injuries they have sustained, an accident in a nursing home could have life-changing implications for an injured resident. Seniors often take longer to convalesce than younger accident victims. The injuries they have acquired in an accident could require hospitalization, complicated invasive surgeries, and profound lifestyle adjustments. Because of an accident caused by the nursing home staff’s negligence, seniors could lose what independence they have left. They could lose their mobility, suffer chronic pains for the rest of their lives, and incur substantial financial losses, all thanks to a staff member’s failure to consider the safety of their facility’s residents.

If the wrongful actions of nursing home staff members result in an injurious accident, the staff may be considered negligent. Often, nursing home staff fail to reasonably fulfill their duty of care through lack of supervision. If left unsupervised, residents may wander outside or into restricted areas where they may be at risk of injuries. Custodial or maintenance staff may also fail to adequately address potential hazards at the facility, such as broken handrails on staircases or cluttered walkways. By neglecting to remove or repair these hazards, staff may be considered responsible for accidents that occur as a result. Additionally, if a nursing home resident takes medication that causes dizziness or drowsiness but their nurses or orderlies do not provide them with ambulatory assistance, they could be considered negligent if their patient slips, falls, and becomes injured.

Many nursing home residents have fixed or limited incomes, and may not be able to afford essential injury-related expenses. In these situations, the negligence of the nursing home’s staff could have adverse financial effects on both their residents and their families.
