Common Treatments for Traumatic Brain Injuries in Nursing Homes
Depending on the severity of the injury, patients may have complex needs that require specialized care. Nursing interventions should be tailored to the patient’s symptoms to ensure maximum medical improvement. Common treatments for traumatic brain injuries include:
- Health education;
- Memory training;
- Physical impairments;
- Pain medication;
- Speech therapy;
- Emotional support and therapy; and
- Long-term rehabilitation.
If a nursing home resident suffers a brain injury due to negligence or abuse, the victim may have grounds for a tort claim against the at-fault caregiver or facility. It’s not uncommon for life care plans and expert witness testimony to play a key role in the success of these cases.
At Cardinal LifeCare Consulting, we can put you in touch with qualified medical professionals who have an in-depth understanding of traumatic brain injuries and nursing home standards of practice.
