Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect

Placing a loved one in a nursing home is rarely an easy decision. Choosing the right nursing home can be a difficult task, as family members search for a facility where their loved one will be safe and well cared for.

Unfortunately, some nursing home residents suffer due to neglect and abuse. Injuries or death may occur when nursing home staff fails to prevent:

  • Choking
  • Falls
  • Bedsores
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Nonreceipt of medication and treatment
  • Reinjury

Any of these signs or symptoms present in your loved one may indicate that abuse or neglect is occurring. It is important to take these signs seriously, because your loved one may not be able to verbalize what is happening.

If you are concerned, it is advisable to speak to a nursing home abuse attorney as soon as possible.
