One of the main causes of hospitalizations due to malpractice in nursing homes is inadequate staffing. Many nursing homes are run for profit, which means that they often cut costs by understaffing their facilities. This can lead to a lack of proper care and attention for residents, resulting in injuries or illnesses that require hospitalization.
Another cause of hospitalizations due to malpractice in nursing homes is neglect or mistreatment by staff members. This can include failure to provide proper medical care, failure to assist with activities of daily living, and failure to properly monitor residents. This type of neglect or mistreatment can lead to serious injuries or illnesses, requiring hospitalization.
Medication errors are also a common cause of hospitalizations in nursing homes. These errors can happen when a resident is not given the correct medication, the incorrect dosage, or is given medication at the wrong time. Medication errors can lead to serious health complications and hospitalization.
Falls are another common cause of hospitalization in nursing homes. Many older adults have mobility issues, and falls can lead to serious injuries such as broken bones, head trauma, and internal bleeding. Nursing homes must take steps to prevent falls and ensure that residents are safe, but when they fail to do so, the results can be serious and require hospitalization.
