Nursing Home Falls

Assertively Fighting for the Rights of Our Clients

Nursing Home Falls

Nursing homes play a vital role in caring for our elderly loved ones when they require specialized medical attention and assistance with daily living activities. Families trust these facilities to provide a safe and comfortable environment for their vulnerable relatives. However, one of the most common and concerning issues in nursing homes is the occurrence of preventable falls. 

The Prevalence of Nursing Home Falls

Falls are a pervasive issue in nursing homes across the United States, including in New York. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 1,800 nursing home residents die each year due to falls, with many more experiencing non-fatal injuries. These falls can lead to fractures, head injuries, and long-term health complications, affecting the well-being and quality of life of our elderly population.
