Elderly people sometimes fall because of frailty or problems with balance related to side effects of medication or to other factors. Hips and other bones can break and complications can develop. Many falls can be prevented with proper care.
In some nursing home environments, residents fall and are injured because of the negligence or carelessness of the nursing home and its staff. In most of these preventable falls, a resident is not monitored properly. Particularly when a person is known to be a fall risk, the facility is responsible for keeping that person safe.
