Putting A Stop To Nursing Home Abuse

It is heartbreaking to discover that a vulnerable elderly loved one is being abused by the very place that should give him or her the best care. But even at the very best nursing homes, neglect and abuse can happen. If a facility is understaffed or poorly regulated, it is easy for things to slip through the cracks, but this negligence is unacceptable.

What To Do When You Suspect Abuse

With more than two decades of experience, our attorneys can offer valuable advice. Clients who suspect abuse should begin by surveying the situation and speaking with their loved one. Sometimes, they may be afraid to speak about their experience, or not quite remember the details, so some common signs of abuse or neglect to look for include:

  • Bedsores
  • Bowel impactions
  • Broken bones
  • Bruises
  • Burns
  • Constant rocking back and forth
  • Cuts
  • Dehydration
  • Falls
  • Fear of being left alone
  • Infections
  • Malnutrition
  • Medication errors
  • Open wounds
  • Oversedation
  • Poor personal hygiene
  • Verbal or physical abuse
  • Weight loss

If there are signs of abuse, don't delay. Consult with an experienced nursing home abuse attorney as soon as possible. Depending upon the severity of the abuse, this may even be a catastrophic injury case. Advice about how to handle the situation is unique to every circumstance, so call our lawyers today to seek accountability through a lawsuit.
