Nursing homes are often liable if a resident is injured by another resident. I’ve had cases during my career where there was bad blood between residents or there were combative residents who suffer from different dementia situations on the floor of the nursing home. A nursing home has an obligation to assess the situation and to provide a safe environment for the residents. Therefore if you have one resident who is a provocateur, and that person is constantly attacking or interfering with other residents, the nursing home can well be liable for a failure to intervene or supervise the combatant resident who causes injury to another.
