Among the many issues nursing home facilities face, epilepsy and seizures in patients are of particular concern. These dangerous medical conditions can be a warning sign of even more serious conditions, or can lead to injury or death. Unfortunately, these conditions are hard to diagnose or to treat, and the prevalence of these potentially life-threatening conditions continues to rise in long-term care facilities across the country. Rigorous risk management practices must be adopted by care facilities, and these include some form of nursing home insurance. By adopting such practices, facilities can protect their assets, their staff, and their patients from the losses associated with injuries or property damage resulting from these difficult-to-treat neurological conditions.
