Iowa Nursing Home Bone Fracture, Bed Rail Entrapment Lawyer
As a person gets older, their risk for falls increases. Iowa nursing home injuries and falls attorney Marc Humphrey understands what happens when an inattentive staff member could actually be the single greatest danger that a resident faces each day in a nursing home.
Bone Fracture, Broken Bone, or Broken Hip
Humphrey Law Firm will aggressively pursue compensation from nursing home companies whose neglectful staff created an environment that causes a fall injury, entrapment or assault. Given the age and physical condition of many nursing home residents, a fall resulting in a bone fracture, broken bone, or broken hip can have severe consequences for their overall health. While not all falls can be prevented, nursing home staff can decrease the potential for injury when they closely monitor not only the activities of each resident, but also the conditions of the nursing home.
Poor or Deficient Nursing Home Staff Training Leads to Safety Risks
Poorly trained nursing home staff presents the greatest risk to the safety of nursing home residents. With nursing homes trying to cut corners on their budgets, the better trained and qualified nursing home staff are motivated to leave for more financially lucrative careers in other medical industries. As the quality and training of the staff lowers, the chances for falls, elder abuse, assaults and other injuries for negligence increase.
Bed Rail Entrapment
One of the gravest risks of injury to nursing home residents comes from the side rails of their beds. If inadequately supervised, residents can become caught in between the bed rails, causing residents to be caught, trapped, entangled, or strangled in their beds by side rails.
Nursing Home Staff Abuse
Injuries can also occur from resident abuse and staff abuse. There is no place in a nursing home for abusive individuals. Not only do they cause emotional injury and physical injury, but they also can create a climate of fear for all residents in the nursing home, which may prevent others from reporting the abuse.
If you suspect that your loved one was injured or in a fall, is abused, assaulted or any other injury due to a lack of attention or poor training by a nursing home staff member or an assault from a fellow resident, you need aggressive and experienced representation.
