A hip fracture is a serious injury for an elderly resident to suffer. It can lead to severe complications, including death. Although falls among older adults may be more likely, nursing homes should have in place safety procedures that would help prevent this type of injury.
Some of the complications that could develop from a hip fracture include:
- blood clots;
- muscle deterioration/weakness;
- urinary tract infection;
- pneumonia; and
- permanent loss of mobility.
If a hip fracture is the result of Kentucky nursing home negligence, compensation for your loved one’s injuries may be available. Contact a nursing home abuse lawyer to learn what your legal options are and if you are entitled to file a claim against the nursing home facility.
