Why Do Falls Occur in Nursing Homes?

In nursing homes, patients are more prone to falls for a number of reasons, including due to muscle weakness in the elderly and certain medications that can cause drowsiness or change in one's balance. While a patient may have a diminished ability to walk, it is still up to the nursing home staff to prevent falls. If the nursing home failed to take measures to help patients prevent falls and fractures, then they can be held liable.

Falls in nursing homes are typically caused by:

  • Poor facilities in nursing homes
  • Lack of upkeep in nursing homes
  • Inattention by nursing home staff
  • Improper maintenance of walking aids
  • Improper elder foot care
  • Neglect by staff
