Placing a loved-one in a nursing or retirement home can be a difficult decision which can compare to placing a child in a daycare center. We expect that the care and attention they receive must meet standards that guarantee the well-being of its residents through adequate facilities, services, staff, and operators. Furthermore, the elderly person's proper care should be placed at the forefront of the nursing home's services. Sadly, the elderly sometimes fall victim to abuse or neglect on behalf of staff members or operators in nursing homes, which can many times lead to personal injury or even wrongful death. Many elderly residents in nursing or retirement homes need certain care as not all elderly people are alike. Some require special attention which sometimes go neglected. Such situations may include medication and dosage errors, proper care for hygiene, and adequate surroundings to meet physical abilities. Ramps and staircases for example, must be well equipped with handrails and safe walking surfaces. An elderly person may have difficulty walking through poor eyesight or physical ability which can lead to personal injury. In a retirement home, as well as a nursing home, proper lighting and unsoiled surface are fundamental for avoiding accidents that lead to slip and fall situations.
