Nursing Home Falls and Other Injuries
Unfortunately, some nursing homes are run with poorly trained staff and inattentive supervisors. All too often, these facilities provide substandard care to one of our most vulnerable populations - the elderly. However, nursing home residents are protected by the Ohio Nursing Home Resident's Bill of Rights. This law guarantees residents a clean, safe environment free of abuse, and many other rights as well.
At the Cleveland law office of Rubin Guttman & Associates, L.P.A., we hold nursing homes and nursing home staff accountable for injuries suffered by your loved one due to abuse or neglect, including falls and fractures. Our attorneys have over 45 years of cumulative experience pursuing justice on behalf of victims of nursing home neglect and their families.

Seriously troubling accidents, including wrongful death can result when basic standards of care are not met. For instance:
- Was it clear that the resident had prior falls but action to help prevent future falls was not taken?
- Was a medication for a patient that is known to increase the risk of falling administered to a patient without appropriate supervisory measures taken?
- Were alarms ignored or not used by overworked staff? Did a patient who had trouble walking or getting around receive help?
- How did the nursing home staff treat the resident after the accident? Was appropriate care provided? How long did it take the nursing home to obtain medical treatment for the patient?
