The top cause of traumatic injury for elderly patients is what is known as an “unintentional fall.” These falls are particularly dangerous to older adults as they can lead to serious injuries such as spinal fractures, hip fractures, and brain injuries. The reason these falls are called unintentional is because the person falling did not intend to fall. The fact that the person falling did not intend to fall, however, does not mean that a caregiver or nursing home is blameless for your loved ones injuries.
A nursing home has a duty to protect its patients and residents. The nursing home must take responsible and adequate steps to ensure that its patients are not placed in a situation where they risk falling and injuring themselves. They must use appropriate interventions to limit the likelihood of any fall. A nursing home cannot honestly contend that a fall was unavoidable unless it took all reasonable precautions to protect against a patient’s risk of falling.
