Arkansas Nursing Home Falls & Broken Bones Attorneys
Personal Attention | Proven Results
On average, a nursing home with 100 residents reports about 100-200 falls per year. Roughly 2%-6% of each fall results in some type of fracture. Moreover, about 5% of U.S. adults over the age of 65 reside in nursing homes—but deaths due to falls by nursing home residents makeup 20% of deaths in the same age group.
Nursing homes and assisted living facilities are designed to meet the medical needs of residents who are prone to falling given their age, physical and mental difficulties. Further, federal and state law require nursing homes to keep standards regarding resident care and safety. Unfortunately, sometimes nursing homes and long term care facilities may fail to meet these standards in such a way that they are negligent (or found responsible) for failing to prevent an avoidable fall that resulted in serious injury or death to one of their residents. Examples of this type of negligent activity include:
- Lack of security protocols.
- Failure to properly supervise.
- Exposed hazards like electrical wiring and wet floors.
- Improper maintenance of the facility resulting in fall hazards.
- Faulty or inadequate lighting.
- Inappropriate social activities.
- No hand railing on beds.
- Medical errors like under medicating, over medicating, and misdiagnosis.
