Compensation for injury from falls and immobility in hospital

What is the first thing you think of when you think about a hospital stay? You will probably think of the process of getting better, which could happen quickly or slowly depending on the condition you have.

For some people a hospital stay for one condition can result in another condition being created as well. This is particularly true when falls and immobility in hospital lead to other injuries that could have been prevented.

What can go wrong in hospital?

When you go to hospital the idea is to be treated so you can get better. Unfortunately in some cases this is not the outcome. While most people have a positive experience and come out feeling better than when they went in, there are things that can go wrong in a medical setting like this.

For example some people suffer from falls and immobility in hospital. Being immobile is not good for anyone and in this situation you may get bed sores and other conditions that are directly derived from being immobile. This is why patients are encouraged to get up and start moving around as soon as possible after many types of surgery.

How is it possible to fall?

In the case of falls it is very easy to suffer in this way. For instance let’s say you have just had an operation and you are encouraged to get out of bed to walk around. You should have assistance to do this in case you feel woozy or unwell. If you are told to do it and no one is there to help and you fall, there could be a case of negligence to answer.

Another example would be an elderly person asking for help to get to the toilet. If no help comes and they attempt it by themselves, they could fall and end up with an injury that could have been avoided.
