Nursing Home Abuse: Slip, Trip, and Fall Accidents

Slip, Trip, and Fall Accidents

Elderly adults are at higher risk of serious injury when they fall.  For adults in nursing homes or assisted living facilities, those falls may be due to neglectful care.   Nursing homes and assisted living facilities are required to maintain a plan to prevent falls and the standard plan of care if a fall should occur.  When they do not follow these plans, the nursing home or assisted living facility is providing inadequate care to the residents and should be held accountable.

The most common causes of slips, trips, and falls in a nursing home or assisted living facility are:

  • Inadequate lighting
  • Wet floors
  • Failure to assist patients using the restroom
  • Inadequate supervision due to understaffing
  • Over medicating a patient that results in dizziness or loss of balance
  • Broken wheelchairs, walkers, and other medical devices used for mobility

    Mr. Banks was very helpful and full of knowledge on winning custody for us. He knew what points to hit on in court and was a success. He is very professional and even took the time on the weekends to return our calls texts or emails. He told us step by step how it would all go down in court and exactly what we needed to do on our part. He hit the nail on the head! Thanks for everything!
