Medical Malpractice: Hospital Falls
If you are in a hospital due to an injury or an illness, you may be very weak. You may be taking medication that impacts your sense of balance. In summary, if you are weakened, or on medication, it may be difficult to move freely. If this is the case, hospital employees should help you get to where you need to go. Wheelchairs should be available to transport people who should not be walking. Unfortunately, many hospitals and other care facilities are not properly staffed. In some cases, patients who should not be walking suffer severe injuries or even death due to falls in a hospital. Falls can cause serious injuries, or worsen existing injuries.
