An increased potential for falling is in some ways inevitable with age. However, slip and falls are a specific type of fall that generally occurs because conditions in the nursing home make them more likely. These injuries can range from minor, such as skinned hands and knees, to severe, such as traumatic brain injury and broken bones. They may also lead to death in some cases. The older a person is the more dangerous even a simple fall can be. Nursing home accidents and treacherous walking surfaces are leading causes of injury to aging Americans.
