This case involves an 88-year-old patient who fell and suffered injuries while at a hospital. The patient was being accompanied by a nurse to the bathroom. Once in the bathroom, the nurse left the patient’s side. There were no grab bars or any other such aids in the bathroom, so the patient leaned against what he perceived as the wall for support. What he leaned against was actually a shower curtain which was the same color as the walls. The patient fell and suffered a compression fracture in his back. An expert in hospital building standards was sought to review the case and comment on the responsibility of the hospital to ensure rooms are kept in compliance.
