Nursing Home Negligence Attorneys

A nursing home injury is any type of physical harm that an elderly person suffers while staying at a long term care facility.

In far too many cases, these injuries stem from nursing home abuse. Abuse can leave seniors traumatized, permanently disabled, or worse.

Common Nursing Home Injuries Include…

  • Bedrail Injuries
  • Bedsores
  • Broken Bones
  • Concussions
  • Falls and Fractures
  • Infections
  • Spinal Injuries

 

Facility staff members who abuse or neglect residents do the exact opposite of what their job entrusts them to do: help seniors live out their lives comfortably and with dignity. These malicious staff members should be held responsible for their actions.

 

PREVENTING NURSING HOME INJURIES

While nursing homes should have protocols in place to protect residents, it may not be enough to keep every senior safe. In those cases, family members can take action to ensure their loves one does not continue to suffer from nursing home neglect or injury.

In The News

His elderly mother wandered out into the cold and died. Whose fault was it?

The woman had dementia and a history of wandering. She walked out of her independent-living facility on a cold night and couldn’t figure out how to get back in.

-article by Stacy Burling, published Feb 9, 2018

On a frigid night last March, Ellen Hinds, who was 85 and had dementia, left her apartment building in her retirement community north of Philadelphia wearing only light pajamas. There was snow on the ground, and her feet were bare.  She carried a potted plant but no key.  It was 2:15 a.m.

Five hours later, she was found near a different door lying facedown in the snow.  She was turning blue. Her feet showed signs of frostbite.  There were icicles on her hands and feet, according to a report from first responders.

She died a week later having never regained consciousness.

“I put my trust in them. They said they would do an assessment they never did,” said Rowe, who got the “horrible” news that his mother was in the hospital as his plane landed in Florida for his honeymoon.  As for the security company, he said, “If they were doing their rounds, someone would not be at a door for five hours freezing to death.”

Rowe’s King of Prussia-based lawyer, Robert Snyder, said Shannondell should have put Hinds “in the right place to get the right care so she’d still be alive today.”

Snyder argues that the expectation of support is different for a resident of independent living in a CCRC than for regular apartment dwellers.

“You’re not independent,” he said. “You’re buying a program for multiple steps for the rest of your life.  You’re buying a first step.”
