What Leads To Nursing Home Injuries?
Understaffing, medical errors and failure to properly screen nursing home employees are three major factors that lead to nursing home negligence and abuse. For example:
- Nursing home injuries are often the result of falls, medication errors, and failure to monitor residents.
- Serious infections can occur in nursing home residents for a variety of reasons, including failure of the staff to ensure proper hygiene. For example, the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic makes it incumbent upon nursing homes to take immediate action to protect nursing home residents from infection.
- Life-threatening medical problems like pressure ulcers — also known as bedsores — can result when nursing home staff allow a resident to remain too long in a bed without movement or cleaning.
- In extreme cases, nursing home residents suffer serious physical and psychological injuries due to assault and sexual abuse, either by nursing home staff or other nursing home residents.
