Fractures and broken bones occur frequently in nursing homes. Some residents have a habit of falling out of bed or slipping out of their chairs. Other injuries happen when nursing home residents wander off without supervision and hurt themselves.
If your loved one suffered injuries that indicate he or she fell, such as bruises, abrasions, broken bones or a concussion, you should question your loved one about them. You should also demand answers from nursing home staff regarding those injuries.
You may also have cause to initiate legal action against the nursing home. For a free consultation with an attorney about a possible lawsuit, call T.J. Smith, Attorney at Law, at 502-792-7937.
