Nursing Home Abuse
Placing a loved one in a nursing home can be a difficult, emotional decision. We spend countless hours researching and visiting facilities. When we finally select a facility, we put all of our trust in the facility to care for our loved one. We expect the facility to take care of our family member, meet their daily needs, keep them safe, and provide appropriate medical care. Unfortunately, facilities do not always provide our loved ones with the level of care they deserve.
What signs should I be looking for?
There are signs that may indicate that your loved one is not receiving adequate care in a nursing facility. Some of the signs to look for are:
- Dirty bed linens
- Bed sores
- Frequent urinary tract infections
- Injuries such as bruising, head injuries, or broken bones
- A decline in communication
- Signs of dehydration or malnourishment
- Poor hygiene
If your family member has suffered injury, abuse, or neglect while in a nursing home, give us a call to learn more about your rights and options. Nursing homes and residential care facilities can be held legally responsible when they have acted in a way that resulted in harm or injury to a patient. Your loved one could have a right to be compensated for their losses including medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more.
If you have questions about injuries or treatment your loved one has received as a nursing home resident, give us a call.
