One of the greatest problems faced by nursing home patients involves falls at the nursing home. Patients often present with a variety of fall risks including but not limited to dementia, gait instability, medications causing disorientation, and history of prior falls.
Patients often require assistance to get from a bed or a wheelchair to go to the bathroom, take a bath/shower, or go for medical testing.
Expert review of the records and the circumstances is often needed to determine whether negligence is involved. Falls can produce fractures and can even start a domino effect resulting in death.
