There are a variety of ways that nursing home residents (as well as others in health care facilities such as assisted living facilities and hospitals) can get burned. Many of these burns constitute nursing home accidents.
While there are many reasons that burns may happen, here are a few ways in which these burn accidents can happen in Illinois nursing homes:
- Hot water burns, such as from a shower or bath that is too hot
- Burns from drinks (coffee, water, etc) or food that is too hot
- Burns from smoking
- Chemical burns
- Burns from heating elements
- Burns from nursing home fires
