Protecting the rights of nursing home residents in Ohio

Increased age often comes with increased disorientation and decreased bone density, making many nursing home residents more susceptible to falls and serious injuries. Despite best efforts, falls can still occur, but many nursing home falls are preventable. In fact, if you or a loved one has fallen at nursing home, it could be a sign of abuse or neglect.

Nursing home falls could be a sign of neglect or abuse

Falling can cause injuries at any age, but as we get older, falls tend to cause more serious harm. Due to this risk, nursing homes should have policies in place to prevent residents from falling, but falls still occur. If a resident's falling injuries were caused by abuse or neglect, it is critical to ensure that the resident receives skilled legal representation along with proper care and medical treatment.

Many believe that care center slip-and-falls are inevitable, but nursing homes should be able to give their residents the care they need to live without hurting themselves. If you have been hurt in a nursing home fall, make sure you have someone looking out for your best interests.
