Phoenix Falls At Nursing Home Attorneys
When the elderly are placed in a nursing home, we assume they will be cared for and appropriately monitored. When they are not, serious injury is always a danger. One of the biggest of these dangers comes from falls. It is important to realize that falls are not uncommon. Unfortunately, if a staff member does not do his or her due diligence, they may be put back into bed without reporting the incident.
If they have suffered an injury such as a fracture, they may experience pain without appropriate medical assistance. Such injuries can cause or exacerbate issues of mobility or put the resident at risk for other medical problems, including pressure ulcers.
It is important to realize that the nursing home staff is obligated to identify and assess a resident’s fall risk. This means following protocol and assessing risk at the time of admission. This protocol is too often ignored.
