Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Hey Guys! Today we are going to answer Robert’s question about his dad’s stay at a nursing home where he took a fall.
Robert, Take it away!
Hi, my name is Robert. My father is a resident at a nursing home and he fell out of bed and hurt his arm.
I am not sure what happened but he has problems walking and he has fallen a lot before he fell at the nursing home.
Is this a case?
What should we do?
What is our first step?
Thanks, Mr. DeSalvo.
Thanks for the question Robert. You know, nursing home cases are very good cases.
When the nursing home knows somebody has a problem with falling, they actually assess the residents for the risk and then there are safeguards that they are supposed to take.
So you might think that the fact that your dad had lots of falls before going into the nursing home makes it a tougher case because his injury at the nursing home involves a fall – it is actually the exact opposite.
So when an elderly person or an ill person goes into a nursing home, the nursing home has to do a fall assessment risk.
The assessment is in writing so it should be in your dad’s hospital records or nursing home medical records.
When the nursing home knows somebody has a problem with falling, they actually assess them for the risk and then there are safeguards that they are supposed to take.
Now, if they didn’t follow those safeguards or didn’t do a fall assessment and if your dad falls and hurts himself under the care of the nursing home, that is a really great case. It absolutely is a case that can be proven.
If the nursing home didn’t follow the safeguards or didn’t do a fall assessment and if the resident falls and hurts himself under the care of the nursing home, it absolutely is a case that can be proven.
I don’t think you mentioned how bad your dad got hurt, but even if it is a minor injury, you don’t entrust your loved one into a nursing home for the nursing home to break the rules in a way that results in your loved one being hurt.
So whether it is a big case or a small case, there is compensation for your father.
I would encourage you definitely to talk to a lawyer just based on the information you’ve given me.
Of course you can call me or speak with any other attorney that you are comfortable with.
I would say you are better off going with an attorney who has some experience handling nursing home cases because they can be a little bit more complicated than, for example, a car crash case. But it’s a solid case and you should do something.
If you or a loved one has been hurt, call a lawyer for a free consultation.
I hope your dad is okay and I hope this information helps you.
