Nursing home slip and falls usually are caused by a foreign substance on a floor, in an aisle or on a stairway, walkway, driveway or sidewalk. Slippery substances include water, soap, oil, snow, ice, food or beverage. Other causes include tools being left on the ground, loose tiles or floor planks, open carpet seams and unexpected rises or dips on a paved surface. These incidents commonly occur at houses, apartment complexes, buildings, offices, nursing homes, hospitals, restaurants, bars, taverns, hotels, motels, grocery stores, super markets, shopping malls, outlet malls, retail stores, stadiums, concert venues, convention centers and parking garages. They often involve violations of local housing and building codes and are the result of the property owner or operator’s negligence.
