Nursing Home Injuries

  • Dehydration Leading to Kidney/Renal Failure: Failure to provide adequate hydration can result in serious medical complications, including kidney or renal failure, endangering the health and well-being of residents.
  • Severe Malnutrition Resulting in Hospitalization: Neglecting to provide proper nutrition can lead to severe malnutrition, requiring hospitalization and posing significant health risks to residents.
  • Choking on Food Resulting in Death from Aspiration: Improper feeding techniques or lack of supervision can lead to residents choking on food, resulting in aspiration and, in some cases, death.
  • Sepsis and Infections: Poor hygiene practices and unsanitary conditions in nursing homes can increase the risk of infections, including sepsis, which can be life-threatening if not promptly treated.
  • Pressure Ulcers (Bedsores) and Similar Open Wounds: Failure to reposition immobile residents or provide adequate skin care can lead to the development of pressure ulcers, which can progress to stage four (stage IV) depth in the skin, requiring surgical intervention or even amputation of toes and feet, particularly in diabetic or circulation-compromised individuals.
  • Slip and Fall Incidents: Inadequate supervision and environmental hazards can contribute to slip and fall accidents among residents, resulting in fractures such as broken hips and other bones, as well as head trauma.
  • Wandering Off and Harm Offsite: Nursing home negligence, including understaffing and inadequate training, can lead to residents wandering off the premises and suffering harm offsite due to lack of supervision and care.
