Lack of Supervision and Medical Malpractice in Chicago

There are many possible factors that can result in a patient or nursing home resident being at high risk for falls. Medication can cause a patient to become disoriented or lose his or her balance. A recent injury or a patient's medical condition may render him or her unstable when attempting to transfer or ambulate. Elderly patients frequently suffer from conditions that increase both the likelihood of falling as well as the severity of the injuries suffered in a fall. For these and other reasons, nursing homes and hospitals are required to offer sufficient levels of assistance and supervision to prevent injuries due to falls.

If patients are left alone for extended periods, they may feel the need to risk moving even if they know their balance is compromised. Many fall cases happen at night when patients get up to relieve themselves. Hospitals and nursing homes can reduce the risk of falls in numerous ways. Proper supervision and training are vital to protecting patients from serious injuries caused by falls.

Serious Injuries and Wrongful Death

The most common serious injuries caused by falls include head trauma, excessive bleeding, broken bones and, in some cases, death. Nursing homes and hospitals are in the best position to protect patients from these injuries. When a nursing home or medical facility fails to follow the proper standard of care and a fall occurs as a result, it should be held accountable.
