QUEENS NURSING HOME ACCIDENT LAWYERS
To a healthy adult, a fall out of bed or off of a chair may not result in an injury. To an elderly person, a fall of just a foot or more can result in a serious hip fracture or broken bones.
Nursing home staff members are supposed to be trained to help elderly residents guard against falls. In cases of transporting the resident into or out of bed, loading from a wheelchair or stepping into or out of a transportation van, there is little excuse for neglecting to take extra precautions. Additionally, management policies and procedures should be in place to protect residents from unsupervised activities that can result in fall injuries.
