Alzheimer's and Wandering Injuries
Nursing home patients are uniquely vulnerable. This is especially true in the case of patients who suffer from Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia.
Nursing home administrators and staff have a duty to take adequate measures to protect their patients. They must take extra steps to protect patients who are uniquely susceptible to accident injuries, including fall injuries and injuries caused by wandering and elopement. Nursing homes have a responsibility to put in place and closely abide by policies that minimize the possibility that at-risk patients will sustain serious or fatal injuries due to such accidents.
All too often, however, nursing homes prioritize profits over people. Many nursing home accidents are caused by understaffing, insufficient staff training and other cost-cutting measures.
If your loved one has been injured due to the negligence of a nursing home, contact an experienced personal injury attorney at Brady & Jensen. We serve clients throughout Northern Illinois, including the Chicago metro area, Cook, Kane, DuPage, Lake, McHenry, DeKalb, Boone and Winnebago counties.
