Causes of Nursing Home Injuries

Residents of nursing homes may suffer injury if nursing home staff members fail to:

  • Provide adequate nutrition and hydration
  • Assist residents who need help getting up, going to the bathroom, bathing, and other tasks
  • Pay attention to residents’ concerns and complaints
  • Allow adequate time for socialization
  • Provide medical attention when needed

Nursing home staff should be properly trained in techniques for assisting the elderly and medical care should be provided if residents require it.
