Should I Contact a Lawyer After a Nursing Home Fall?

nursing home fall

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), about 36% of hospital emergency room visits for long-term care residents are due to falls. The average assisted living facility accounts for 100 to 200 falls each year. Unfortunately, a nursing home fall can cause serious problems effecting the quality of life, disability, and reduced independence. Of course, as our population ages, the CDC estimates by 2030, nearly 3 million people will live in assisted living facilities.

About 20% of these falls can be prevented by improving controllable environmental factors. These factors include poor lighting, wet floors, and incorrect bed height. According to the CDC, only about 5% of seniors live in assisted living facilities, but they account for up to 20% of the deaths due to falls. But many times, the last nursing home fall was not the first fall. The CDC estimates that each elder citizen falls 2.6 times. In the end, about 1,800 senior citizen die each year from a fall.

Steps to Assessing Senior Home Safety

Steps to Assessing Senior Home SafetySenior Home Safety Tips

 

Assessing senior home safety is necessary to identify and eliminate safety risks. Seniors face a variety of safety risks in the home including falls, fires, security breaches, and unattended medical emergencies. If your loved one wants to age in peace independently, follow these tips to assess the safety of his or her home.

 

Prevention First

 

Senior home safety starts with prevention. Taking steps like installing safety grips and other bath aids in the bathroom and sturdy staircase rails can reduce the risk of falls in the home. Also, equip your loved one’s home with emergency preparedness supplies. Place a fire extinguisher and smoke detector in every room. Put important emergency contact information on the fridge, and sign up for a medical alert system if your loved one lives alone.

 

Everyday Living

 

Small changes to living areas can significantly increase senior home safety. Help your loved one be self-sufficient by organizing their home so that important everyday items are easily within reach. Store heavier items at waist level. Clearly mark things like hot water faucets and stove on and off switches. Make sure their home has sufficient lighting in the kitchen and bathroom to make cleaning and cooking easier.

 

Help With Healthy Living

 

Your loved one might also need help keeping track of medications, treatments and therapies, and important healthcare appointments. Clearly label and portion out medications. Create a simple calendar system to help them remember doctor’s visits. Schedule grocery deliveries, so your loved one always has fresh food at home. Small steps like these can make a significant difference in his or her ability to practice self-care.

 

Consider Home Adaptations

 

If your senior has a disability or a mobility problem, it might be time to consider in-home adaptations that are senior friendly. These can increase their overall safety in everyday situations and emergencies. Ramps leading to all entrances are relatively easy to install and can reduce the risk of falls. If your senior is wheelchair bound, consider widening doorways to make navigating the home easier. Adding stair lifts is essential for seniors in wheelchairs living in two-story homes. Another important consideration is the countertop height. Most homes are built with countertops too high for those in wheelchairs. Lowering countertops can help your senior take care of him or herself better.

 

Safety in Numbers

 

Senior home safety doesn’t stop at prevention. Make sure you or someone you trust regularly checks in on your loved one. Frequent visits are especially helpful if your loved one is reluctant to ask for help with simple, everyday tasks like cleaning and cooking.

 

Investing your time and resources in helping your senior live an independent life can be a rewarding challenge. But if your loved one is injured in an accident or a victim of nursing home abuse, it’s crucial to seek legal guidance. A skilled Arlington Heights personal injury attorney with experience handling Illinois nursing home abuse claims can help you identify any liable parties and take steps to seek the compensation your loved one deserves.

The Link Between TBI and Intestinal Complications

The Link Between TBI and Intestinal ComplicationsTracing TBI to the Gut

 

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can affect many parts of the body, including the gastrointestinal system. The link between TBI and intestinal complications stems from the close connection between the brain and the gut. The brain is in charge of controlling and regulating your gastrointestinal (GI) system, which means the GI tract can fail in a number of ways after brain injury.

 

Disrupting the System

 

The brain operates the autonomic nervous system, which controls digestive tract functions like contractions and motility. You can experience abdominal pain if your autonomic nervous system is affected by TBI and intestinal complications arise when your GI tract doesn’t function automatically.

 

TBI can also hinder communication between your gut and your brain. When messages between your brain and your GI tract don’t transmit properly, the lack of communication can contribute to conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

 

Brain Injury and GI Tract Damage

 

TBI can also damage parts of your GI tract. For example, the mucus lining in your GI tract can degenerate and die after a trauma such as a car accident. The blood-brain barrier (BBB) can suffer physical damage as well. When that barrier is compromised, harmful chemicals can pass from your bloodstream into brain tissue, leading to numerous intestinal complications. A brain injury can also cause leaky gut syndrome, which is when the cells lining the GI tract become more permeable, allowing larger molecules and pathogens to pass through into your blood stream.

 

Strengthening the Connection

 

The link between TBI and intestinal complications means your gut—like many other parts of your body—can be affected by a brain injury. Fortunately, some of these issues, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, can be alleviated with treatment. But because of the irreparable harm TBI can potentially do to your GI tract, it’s important to treat brain injuries as soon as possible. You should seek prompt medical attention after suffering an injury or getting in an accident to help prevent further damage.

 

Speak with a personal injury attorney if you’ve been in an accident and suffered a brain injury. Before you settle your claim, it’s essential you know the full extent of your injuries. Because TBI can affect many parts of your body in significant ways, you need a thorough medical examination to determine your damages. An experienced Arlington Heights personal injury attorney can ensure you submit the proper evidence to the insurance company to get compensation for your present and future losses.

 

If you want to settle your insurance claim, Arlington Heights personal injury attorney Ronald F. Wittmeyer can help. With more than 30 years experience practicing plaintiffs’ personal injury law, we can fight aggressively on your behalf.

Poison Prevention Month

(U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Hailey R. Staker/Released)

March is Poison Prevention Month. Each year, U.S. Poison Centers receive more than four million poisoning exposures calls.  The Illinois Poison Center (IPC) handles over 80,000 calls annually via its FREE, confidential helpline (1-800-222-1222).  Half of the calls involve children of 5 years of age or under. However, many of the most serious cases involve an adult. Calls range from people exposed to a variety of substances that can be potentially harmful causing minimal to fatal reaction including:

  • medications,
  • vitamins/supplements,
  • plants,
  • chemicals household/automotive products,
  • insect/animal bites and stings,
  • lead, and
  • carbon monoxide.

Accidental Drug Overdoses

For many of the children involved, they did not know what they were doing when they opened a prescription bottle and swallowed all of the medicine. Researchers say emergency rooms treat more than 60,000 young children in the U.S. each year for accidental overdoses. Generally, they got into medicines when their parent or caregiver failed to notice. Prescription bottles are child-resistant, not child proof. Children can open the bottles and take these very dangerous medications.

To combat the problem, the Center of Disease Control (CDC) and a coalition of health partners recently launched the “Up and Away and Out of Sight” campaign to encourage parents to protect children from accidental drug overdoses. They recommend the following steps:

  • Put all medications and vitamins in a place children can’t reach.
  • Put medicines and vitamins away every time you use them. Never leave them out on a kitchen counter or at a sick child’s bedside, even if you have to give the medicine again in a few hours.
  • Listen for the click to make sure the safety cap on medicines is locked.
  • Teach children about medicine safety. Never tell children that medicine is candy to get them to take it.
  • Tell guests about medicine safety. Ask house guests and visitors to keep purses, bags, and coats that have medicines in them up and away and out of sight when they are visiting.
  • Be prepared in case of emergency. Program the poison control phone number into home and cell phones.

We also recommend a prescription lock box to keep prescription out of the hands of children. Doctors across the country also recommend these lock boxes to combat the ongoing opioid epidemic.

Fall Prevention for Seniors: Safety Measures

Fall Prevention for Seniors: Safety MeasuresThe Risks of Falling

 

Falls cause more injuries to seniors than any other accident. Seniors can suffer from hip fractures, head injuries, and broken bones because of a fall. For these reasons, it’s important to educate yourself and your loved one on fall prevention to keep them safe.

 

Anything from vision problems to medication side effects can cause falls. But many falls can be prevented with a few safety measures designed to increase stability and support.

 

Start With Talking

 

A good place to start is having a talk with your loved one about fall prevention. Identify the most significant risks to falling your loved one faces so you can work to reduce them. Every senior’s needs are different, so discuss their fears and concerns.

 

For example, if he or she experiences periodic dizziness, work with a healthcare provider to address the problem. Or, if they are having vision problems, make sure they have a current prescription and are wearing the right glasses. If your loved one needs support when walking, sitting down, or getting up, they may benefit from physical therapy. A physical therapist can help your loved one work on his or her balance, gait, and overall strength, which can reduce or lessen the impact of falls.

 

Learn to Adapt

 

Adapt your loved one’s home for fall prevention. Steps like installing grab bars in the shower and secure railings on stairs can mitigate the risks of falling in the home. Make sure his or her home has good lighting and clear floors to lessen the chance of trips and stumbles. Consider working with an occupational therapist on this step, as they are trained to identify the barriers to safe and healthy living seniors face. Simple steps, like helping your senior around the house, can also reduce the risk of falling from normal activities like cleaning and cooking.

 

Take Preventative Action

 

Caring for your senior can be easy if you are aware of the risks he or she faces. Many seniors suffer injuries from even minor falls. Correcting what problems you can—like providing in-home adaptations—can help reduce the chance your senior will be injured. Also, make sure your senior is safe if he or she is in a nursing home. Nursing homes present many risks, and not all are prepared to protect every resident from falls and slips. And if your loved one is injured in a nursing home, speak with an experienced Arlington Heights area nursing home injury attorney who can help you get the help and compensation you need.

How Is Traumatic Brain Injury Diagnosed?

How Is Traumatic Brain Injury Diagnosed?An Elusive Injury

 

Traumatic brain injury is a serious condition requiring immediate medical attention. But diagnosing traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be challenging, as numerous symptoms can appear. This makes TBI an especially dangerous injury because it can worsen over time without proper treatment.

 

Testing for TBI

 

A neurological examination testing for motor and sensory skills is the first step to diagnosing TBI. Emergency medical providers will often ask the patient questions about what they can feel and ask them to complete simple tasks like making a fist or gripping an object. If these tests indicate possible brain injury, medical providers use brain scans to confirm a diagnosis and assess the scope and severity of the damage.

 

CT scans take cross-sectional x-ray images of the skull to identify fractures, bleeding, brain tissue swelling, and bruising. MRI scans are also used to identify more subtle signs of TBI including scaring or minor bleeding or tissue damage, which a CT scan could miss.

 

In addition to these scanning methods, healthcare providers will evaluate the patient’s symptoms to diagnose TBI. But again, TBI patients can suffer a wide range of symptoms including:

 

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Headache
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness
  • Cognitive deficiencies
  • Slurred speech
  • Loss of sensation
  • Loss of vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Seizures
  • Lack of emotion regulation
  • Loss of bowel or bladder control
  • Memory problems, and
  • Mood swings

 

Some symptoms appear immediately, while others can take weeks or even months to surface. Unfortunately, many people aren’t correctly diagnosed with TBI after an accident, which is made worse without treatment. For this reason, it’s crucial to seek emergency medical treatment after an accident so you can be thoroughly examined. You may not recognize signs of TBI. But TBI—if left untreated—can manifest itself in serious and long-term symptoms.

 

Why a Proper Diagnosis Is Important

 

If you’ve been in an accident, don’t rule out TBI. Concussions are a common injury after car accidents and also a form of TBI. Also, never ignore symptoms of any kind after an accident. Even seemingly unrelated conditions, such as depression, can indicate TBI. Don’t rush into settling your claim before you know the full scope of your injuries. TBI often isn’t diagnosed right away, so follow your medical provider’s recommendations and never settle before you’ve fully recovered and spoken with an Illinois auto accident attorney.

 

Preventing TBI is just as important. Always wear a seat belt in a car, which can reduce the chance of head injury, and wear a DOT-approved helmet if you are a biker or motorcyclist. And seek medical treatment immediately after an accident to catch and treat TBI before it worsens.

Help With Healing: When Severe Fractures Need Surgery

Help With Healing: When Severe Fractures Need SurgeryHelping Fractures Heal

 

Many fractures can heal on their own with immobilization and time. Severe fractures are less likely to heal completely with these conventional treatment methods. Fortunately, modern technology has made it possible to repair severe fractures using sterile surgical techniques. For those suffering from unhealed fractures, surgical treatment can be the key to returning to a healthy, active life.

 

The Surgical Procedure

 

Surgical treatment for fractures involves first reducing the fracture (i.e., positioning the bone back in alignment). This is necessary for the bone to heal without any deformity. Then, the bone or bone fragments are held in place with hardware like plates, screws, wires, and pins. The hardware might need adjustments and eventual removal down the road.

 

The Drawbacks

 

Surgical treatment can reduce the chance of improper healing and help patients regain their functioning sooner. Despite these benefits, surgery is expensive and can be painful. It can also introduce new problems such as infection or ongoing adjustments to the support hardware.

 

Nevertheless, you need to treat your injury fully before you settle your claim. If your fracture heals improperly, you could suffer from discomfort and lack of mobility for the rest of your life. For this reason, it’s important to make sure you’ve healed to the extent that you can before you settle your claim. This is called reaching maximum medical improvement. Otherwise, you’d face potential ongoing medical costs for which you cannot seek compensation.

 

Working With Insurance Companies

 

When treating severe injuries after an accident, it’s a good idea to consult with a personal injury attorney about your options. Insurance companies will typically reimburse you for reasonable and necessary expenses, so you should work with an attorney and your healthcare provider to make sure your treatment is reimbursable. Also, you might need help getting your immediate medical bills paid before you settle, as surgery can extend your treatment timeline while the costs mount up.

 

You shouldn’t have to fight with insurance companies to get your medical bills paid. A personal injury attorney can help you get the treatment you need when you need it. An attorney can coordinate your insurance benefits, work with providers on medical liens, or find other methods of paying your bills while you heal. Also, consult with an attorney before you settle to make sure your compensation reflects your present and future medical bills and pain and suffering.

 

Filing a personal injury claim can be overwhelming, and Arlington Heights personal injury attorney Ronald F. Wittmeyer understands how you feel. With more than 30 years experience practicing plaintiffs’ personal injury law, we can fight aggressively on your behalf.

February Is Heart Health Month – Why Heart Disease Matters to Women

Many do not know that the leading cause of death of women is heart disease. By making healthy lifestyle decisions, you can reduce your chance of heart disease. The following statistics highlight the issue of heart health for women:

  • One in 4 women in the United States dies of heart disease, while 1 in 30 dies of breast cancer.
  • Twenty-three percent of women will die within 1 year after having a heart attack.
  • Within 6 years of having a heart attack, about 46 percent of women become disabled with heart failure.
  • Two-thirds of women who have a heart attack fail to make a full recovery.

The Heart Truth

For over a decade, the National Institute of Health has provided a program called The Heart Truth to help women understand the risk of heart disease.

The focus of the program is to define the risk of heart disease.

The risk factors increase your chance for heart disease and include:

  • High blood pressure
  • High blood cholesterol
  • Diabetes and prediabetes
  • Smoking
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Being physically inactive
  • Having a family history of early heart disease
  • Having a history of preeclampsia during pregnancy
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Age (55 or older for women)

Of course, their recommendation to mitigate these risks begins with your doctor. Your doctor can be an important partner in helping you reach goals for heart health. But remember, be proactive. Take control of your Heart Truth.

What Can You Do?

The FDA has four tips to help you make good decisions about your heart health:

  1. Eat a heart healthy diet. Watch your salt intake, cut back on sugar, and eat less fatty foods.
  2. Manage your health conditions. If you are on a medication, make sure to take the medicine. See your doctor for your annual physical. Early detection can help prevent serious heart disease.
  3. Get the facts about aspirin. Talk to your doctor about whether or not you should take aspirin daily. Do not self-medicate.
  4. Know the signs of a heart attack. Learn what a heart attack feels like and its symptons.

February is a great month to show love to your own heart by making healthy lifestyle choices!

Disability and Insurance Claims: Fair Compensation

Disability and Insurance Claims: Fair CompensationFollowing an accident, you could suffer from a temporary or permanent disability. Getting compensation for your disability, including your medical bills and present and future pain and suffering, involves determining your prognosis and the extent to which your disability affects your life.

 

Short-Term or Long-Term Disability?

 

A broken bone can leave you disabled for a few months. A spinal cord injury can leave you disabled for life. You need to know how long your doctor expects you to be disabled to seek fair compensation for your debilitating injury.

 

Other Factors to Consider

 

Once your doctor gives you a prognosis on whether or disability is short-term and expected to heal or permanent, you need to consider how your disability affects your life. A short-term disability might put you out of work for a month or two, meaning your damages could include lost wages. If you are unable to return to work ever because of a permanent disability, your damages should reflect your life-long needs, not just those of the present.

 

Why Your Lifestyle Matters

 

You may also recover compensation for your loss of functioning, ability to take care of yourself or your family, and your loss of enjoyment in life. If you are left paralyzed, and you have a family to take care of, your settlement should reflect your loss of capacity. Similarly, if you were a professional athlete and no longer able to play due to your disability, your settlement should reflect both loss of income and your inability to participate in your regular activities.

 

A Note of Caution

 

If you have been disabled in an accident and are seeking compensation, you should work closely with an Arlington Heights auto accident attorney. Cases involving disability can be complicated, especially if the disability is permanent. Your eligibility for Social Security Disability could affect your claim, as could any workers’ comp benefits you could receive. In short, many factors can affect your claim, so you should have skilled legal representation when filing your claim. An attorney can serve as your advocate so you can focus on recovery and treatment.

 

A disability can affect your life in many ways. If you have a disability, make sure your priority is taking care of yourself. Follow your doctor’s recommended treatment plan, stay healthy, and seek support from friends and family.

Life-Altering Injuries: Seeking Compensation for Immobility

Life-Altering Injuries: Seeking Compensation for ImmobilityIf you suffered life-altering injuries in a car accident, you could be entitled to compensation for your damages. Damages can include medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages. When it comes to significant injuries that cause immobility, however, determining your damages can be complicated. Many factors can affect your settlement, and it’s important you receive fair compensation for all your losses. You should always work with a knowledgeable Illinois personal injury attorney if you have been seriously injured in an accident, but the following information can help prepare you for your first meeting.

 

The Significance of Immobility

 

If you’ve lost your mobility temporarily or permanently, your life will change. You could have ongoing medical costs, lose your ability to work, and taking care of your family may be impossible. It’s hard to imagine any settlement can truly compensate someone for immobility, but here are a few factors that can influence such a claim.

 

Is your immobility permanent? If so, your settlement needs to reflect your future medical bills and pain and suffering.

 

Have your reached maximum medical improvement (MMI)? MMI is an important criterion when doctors treat severe injuries. You’ve reached MMI if you have healed to the extent that you can, and your doctor does not expect your condition to improve. This can be considered a treatment plateau. If you are immobile because of a severe injury and your doctor believes further treatment will not heal or improve your condition, you may be ready to start settlement negotiations.

 

What was your life like before your injury? Were you active? Did your job require you to do physical labor? These details of your life can affect your settlement because they reflect your unique losses. No personal injury settlement is the same, due in part to these various factors. If your job involved physical labor, you might not be able to return to your line of work. If you need training or an education to find a new job, your settlement could include an amount for that.

 

Similarly, if you skied, hiked, competed in marathons or otherwise enjoyed a very active life, your compensation should reflect the significant losses you’ve suffered. Don’t discount these small details, even if the insurance company does.

 

Moving on With Help

 

Another significant factor is whether you need help to take care of yourself. If you are unable to take care of your daily needs, you may need a home health aide or to stay in an assisted living facility. Again, your settlement should reflect the cost of this care, which can be significant.

 

Handling a personal injury claim on your own can be overwhelming, even more so if you suffered serious injuries and are immobile. You should be focusing on treatment and figuring out what you need to help you adapt to your condition, not fighting for your right to fair compensation with insurance companies. Find an experienced Arlington Heights personal injury attorney who can be your advocate and handle your claim while you focus on what’s important.
