About nursing home injuries

Nursing home injuries are a serious concern for families with loved ones in long-term care. Individuals in nursing homes are often elderly or have medical conditions that require constant attention, making them more prone to accidents and injuries. According to the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA), around 10% of nursing home residents experience some form of abuse, with injuries common.

Injuries in nursing homes can range from mild bruises to life-threatening conditions such as fractures, head injuries, and infections.

Common causes of these injuries can be:

  • Neglect
  • Abuse
  • Medication errors
  • Falls
  • Failure to treat
  • Unethical use of restraints
  • Over-medication

Families must be vigilant and immediately report any signs of abuse or neglect to the appropriate authorities.

Birth injuries

Birth injuries can occur at any stage of pregnancy, labor, or delivery and can have life-long consequences for both the infant and mother. Most birth injuries result from medical malpractice. 

The most common types of birth injuries are:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb's palsy
  • Brain damage
  • Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)

These injuries can be caused by various factors, such as:

  • Improper use of instruments during delivery
  • Failure to monitor fetal distress
  • Failure to perform a timely C-section

What must be proven in a medical malpractice case?

Medical malpractice cases can be complex and require extensive evidence to prove negligence by the healthcare provider.  In a successful medical malpractice case, the plaintiff must prove the following:

  • A duty of care was owed to the patient
  • The healthcare provider breached the duty of care
  • The breach of duty caused the injury, illness, worsened condition, or death
  • The injury resulted in damages

If these elements can be established, the plaintiff can seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages related to the injury.
