Different Causes of Nursing Home Injuries
Nursing home injuries can occur due to a variety of factors, many of which are preventable with proper care and attention. If the injury is caused by something that should have been preventable, then the nursing home could be liable through Georgia’s civil liability laws.
Common causes of nursing home injuries include:
- Slip and falls: Elders who have mobility issues may be at a higher risk of falls from slippery floors, poor lighting, or lack of assistive devices.
- Medication errors: When medication is not administered correctly or dosages are incorrect, residents may experience adverse reactions or not receive necessary medication.
- Staffing issues: Understaffed nursing homes may have overworked employees that do not have the time to give residents proper care and attention.
- Physical abuse and assault: Some nursing home residents may be at risk of physical abuse from staff or other residents, which includes sexual, emotional, social, and financial abuse as well.
- Negligent care: Residents may suffer injuries if they are not properly protected from falls, bedsores, infections, or malnutrition.
Our Dalton nursing home lawyers are well-versed in the various forms of neglect or abuse that can occur in nursing homes. We are equipped to help our clients pursue the justice and compensation they deserve after such an unthinkable act is allowed to occur, especially if it has occurred repeatedly.
Nursing Home Neglect Compared to Abuse
While both nursing home abuse and neglect involve harm done to nursing home residents, they are distinct forms of harm. Nursing home abuse is a deliberate act of harm to a nursing home resident, while neglect refers to harm caused by a lack of proper care or attention.
Differences between nursing home abuse and nursing home neglect can be further discussed:
- Nursing home abuse: Nursing home abuse can take many forms, including physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, financial exploitation, and more. Caregivers may intentionally harm residents by physically hitting or mistreating them, verbally assaulting them or making derogatory statements, or taking advantage of their finances or other assets.
- Nursing home neglect: Neglect is usually considered to be a form of unintentional harm. Neglect may occur when a nursing home fails to provide adequate care or assistance to its residents, such as failing to regularly help a bed-bound elder change position. Other examples of neglect may include not providing enough food and water to residents or failing to ensure that their living environment is clean and safe.
