Nursing Home Falls & Fractures

Fall Injuries Are Preventable

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 1,800 older adults living in nursing homes die each year from fall-related injuries. Many of these deaths could have been prevented if nursing homes provided the level of care their residents need and deserve.

Falling is a serious problem for elderly and disabled nursing home residents. Nursing home falls cause a wide range of injuries, including:

  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Broken hips
  • Subdural hematoma and other traumatic brain injury
  • Internal bleeding
  • Death

Why Nursing Home Falls Occur

In nursing homes, falls frequently occur because residents are older, suffer from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, or have chronic conditions that involve weakness and difficulty walking. These residents also tend to have problems with cognitive ability (thinking and memory) that put them at risk of trips, slips, or falls when participating in daily activities.

These conditions require special assistance. But, nursing homes often are understaffed. The staff members they do have are typically overworked and underpaid. Too often, they fail to provide the supervision and assistance that residents require.

If your loved one has a balance problem or has difficulty walking, the nursing home staff should have a written plan in place to provide assistance while walking. They should never ignore your loved one’s desire to walk simply because assistance is necessary.
