NURSING HOME NEGLECT
Sometimes, nursing home neglect is the result of understaffing. Sometimes, neglect results from a lack of care in hiring or training. Whatever the reason, there is no excuse for nursing home neglect. These are some of the most vulnerable members of our community and they are entitled to be safe.
- Knowing the signs of abuse: When an elderly resident seems afraid or has unexplained bruises or fractures, family members and other visitors need to ask questions about what is happening. If the answers are vague and don’t make sense, talk to an attorney who can help identify the problem.
- Recognizing evidence of neglect: Bedsores — especially those that become infected — are caused by lack of proper care. A resident who is allowed to wander off, is over-medicated or under-medicated, or shows signs of malnutrition or dehydration is likely a victim of nursing home neglect. Nursing home neglect needs to be dealt with quickly. Ask us about the rights of nursing home residents.
