Deciding on a nursing home for your loved one can be a challenging process. There are many nursing home facilities that are adequately staffed and provide effective care; unfortunately that's not always the case. One of the biggest problems that nursing homes face is preventing nursing home falls. As people age, we lose many of the abilities that we once had – this can include, vision, balance, strength, and more. This does not excuse fall accidents in nursing homes; these incidents can be deadly, depending on the individual.
