Our firm has handled a variety of nursing home cases including the one
of an elderly gentleman that went to live in a nursing home due to his
deteriorating health. During his stay at the nursing home, our client
fell off his bed onto the floor. He attempted to get up, but was crawling
on the floor for more than 15 minutes until someone came to help him.
Due to the fall, the gentleman suffered a fractured hip. After investigating
the incident, it was determined that the fall could have been avoided
if both of the side rails of the bed were up. Additionally, the jury found
the nursing home responsible for nursing home negligence, and violations
of nursing home rights.
