They Should Have Been There to Help
Residents of a nursing home or assisted living center must be properly assessed for fall risk. If the person is frail because of age, disability or illness, there should be procedures in place to make sure the person is properly supported when trying to walk or reposition in bed, or transferring to and from a wheelchair, and for all activities of daily living. Proper policies must be in place for each individual resident, to prevent any falls.
Many falls occur when the resident tries to get up from bed or walk on their own … after getting no response from the call light for assistance. For elderly or chronically ill residents, falling accidents commonly result in fractures; broken hips or legs; or head trauma. These injuries can be catastrophic for the elderly, possibly resulting in pneumonia or death.
