Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. has the most experienced nursing home attorneys who are determined to fight for your loved one’s safety when the nursing home they reside in does not protect them. Many nursing home injuries happen because of poor judgment on the staff’s behalf. Heater burns in Michigan nursing homes are all too common and often times have lasting results on the victims. However, these burn injuries are completely preventable, and when the nursing home is at fault for the injury, a lawsuit can be sought.
The elderly are one of the greatest at risk groups for burn injuries. Many times burn injuries happen because the patient’s safety is not a priority. Falls, which led to heater burns, can happen quite frequently in Michigan nursing homes, even though they are completely preventable. Many times when falls do happen, they can lead to more serious injuries, especially if that patient happens to fall out of bed onto his or her heater.
Burns from heaters can result in treacherous injuries, which can lead to dangerous infections. Space heaters and other appliances used to provide heat for patients can be a dangerous hazard if they are not properly installed and supervised by the staff. Unfortunately, nursing home patients continue to suffer injuries due to the unsuitable judgment of the nursing home staff. Serious burns caused by portable heating devices can be prevented by the proper trained and educated staff. Proper protocol regarding patient care to keep every patient safe should be administered to all staff.
