My mother was in the nursing home for rehab. after being diagnoised with cancer. She fell in the nursing home after being there about 3 weeks. She was not able to get to the bathroom on her own and when she and her roommate would ring for assistance they would wait for 40 minutes or longer to get some assistance. She was trying to get to the restroom and no one came when called to help her. When I ask for bedrails for her bed, because she had fallen out of it at least 2 times. They told us it was against the law to have bedrails on patients beds in a nursing home. We did have them on the bed in the last nursing home she was in, and this was never an issue. Unfortunately my mother passed away March 14, 2013. But want to know if Zionsville Meadows Nursing is liable for the fall.
