  • John Blyth Discusses the Importance of Supervision for People

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly half of all traumatic brain injury-related hospitalizations result from falls. For adults over 65, falls are one of the leading causes of death, accounting for nearly 36,000 fatalities in one recent year alone. Annually, at least three million older adults go to emergency rooms for fall injuries like broken bones and head injuries.

    Since falls are so common and yet so devastating for older individuals, you’d like to think that nursing homes and long-term care facilities would do everything possible to prevent those in their care from injury or death, including supervising people at risk for falls. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case.

    “Older Americans are at a much higher risk of both falling and being injured as a result,” explains Hach & Rose, LLP partner John Blyth. “Nursing homes know this better than anyone, which is why they have a responsibility to carefully monitor any resident who might be a fall risk. And when they don’t, and someone gets hurt, my firm is committed to righting that wrong.”
