Elder Abuse And Nursing Home Accidents

All too often, nursing homes place their drive for profits above the needs and rights of residents which results in facilities that are understaffed and which lack attention. State and Federal law provides “Residents Rights”, which are typically those rights or guarantees given to nursing home residents. Most cases against nursing homes stem from the facility’s failure to provide appropriate health care and protective and supportive services. The lack of care can result in bed sores, pressure sores and ulcers that appear on a resident’s skin and can lead to infection, the need for surgery, or even death. Appropriate nutrition and hydration are also essential for maintaining the health of an elderly nursing home resident. Many times falls and accidents occur in nursing homes because the facility fails to perform appropriate assessments of the resident to determine the risk of falling and fails to take appropriate steps to prevent falls which can lead to broken bones.
