The decision to place an elderly loved one into a Central Virginia nursing home is a tremendously difficult decision to make. Such decisions are made with the knowledge that your loved one requires care and attention that requires training and resources that you are not able to offer in your own home.
When a loved one suffers a fall or burn in a nursing home, it can be hard to accept that negligence is not a factor.
Nursing Home Injuries From Falls
Falls can be very devastating to the elder patient whether caused by neglect, inattentiveness or accident.
Depending upon the type of facility and the care level contracted, falls may or may not necessarily indicate neglect. However, any fall should be documented for evaluation of care requirements going forward.
Let the experienced elder attorneys of Cravens & Noll determine what should be done after and as a result of any fall. Falls are extremely and extraordinarily dangerous to the elderly. Their bones are easily broken and their joints no longer can bear their weight once off-balance, resulting in dislocations and tendon tears. Moreover, falls resulting in broken hips have an extremely high risk of developing multiple other medical complications and can greatly increase the rate of morbidity.
Burn Injuries in Nursing Homes
Just like falls, any burn to an elder patient is an indicator to investigate and determine the cause of the burn and ensure that your loved one receives appropriate treatment.
