Nursing homes and assisted living facilities are obligated to have a prevention program in place to assess and prevent nursing home falls. Often times when a fall happens, nursing homes will try to blame the patient, saying they refused to call them while moving around. With prevention programs in place, nursing homes should have safety devices such as bed alarms, to prevent a person from getting up on their own.
If you feel your loved one experienced a fall due to nursing home neglect, especially if this is the second or third time, contact us for help. Nursing homes are at fault if the nursing home was understaffed, failed to pay attention to the residents needs, the proper equipment was not available for the residents safety or the staff was not trained to handle the situation.
