Detecting Signs of Nursing Home Negligence
Because family and friends are not always present with elderly nursing
home residents, determining any abuse or neglect can be difficult. Still,
there are signs that are commonly present that, if found consistently
or markedly, should be a significant concern.
Nursing home negligence can commonly result in:
- Dramatic change in resident's personality or demeanor
- Increased resident anxiety or depression
- Sudden loss of weight (or other indications of malnutrition)
- Unsanitary conditions in the resident's room
- A noticeable decline in resident's hygiene
- Unexplained bruising
- Missing or broken personal items
- Bedsores or other signs of declining health
If you believe that your elderly loved one is being subjected to neglect
or abuse, securing their well-being is the number one priority. Our firm
can help you manage this transition and, if necessary, immediately start
structuring a malpractice claim that speaks the extent of your nursing
facility’s failure to care for your loved one.
It can be possible to correct the wrongs done against you and your loved ones.
