Joy Saunders suffered a major brain haemorrhage after the incident but solicitors say that despite her incoherent speech and nasty facial bruising, proper tests were not carried out for two days.
The 76-year-old, from Ipswich, has required 24-hour care since the fall in November last year and was recently admitted to a hospice.
Her family have been warned she is in her final days of life.
Her husband David Saunders is now preparing to take legal action on her behalf against private healthcare provider Serco, which solicitors say failed to protect Mrs Saunders.
She had been admitted on November 27 last year, following a stroke whilst on holiday in Spain.
Mr Saunders specifically asked nursing staff to erect bed rails to prevent her falling out in her distressed state.
But early the next morning he received a call telling him his wife had been found lying on the floor.
It is not clear how long she had been on the floor or what steps had been taken to prevent a fall.
When he visited her he said he was shocked by the bruising to her face and found her uncommunicative and dazed.
Despite raising concerns, it was not until two days later that scans were carried out which identified the brain haemorrhage, solicitors said.
Mr Saunders was told that, if her condition deteriorated, his wife would not be resuscitated.
Ever since, she has required around-the-clock care and her family said she has "little or no quality of life".
Serco said it would not comment on an individual case.
