Nursing Home Abuse Lawsuits
When a loved one can no longer manage daily living, relatives often realize that they are also unqualified to give adequate care. Placing an elderly relative in a nursing home or assisted living residence is difficult for most families. But they trust the facility they choose and hope they are doing the right thing. While no one ever plans on nursing home negligence or abuse, it is all too prevalent today.
When residences are understaffed or personnel are untrained or unqualified, residents frequently do not get the care they need. Abuse or neglect can result in malnutrition, disease, preventable falls, and even death.
If you suspect a caregiver or long-term care facility is harming a loved one, you should learn to recognize signs of possible abuse or neglect. Signs may include the following:
- Over- or under-medication
- Sudden weight loss or gain
- Unsanitary conditions
- Poor personal hygiene
- Torn clothing
- Misuse of restraints
- Missing clothes or belongings
- Bruises or wounds
- Poor skin coloring
- Withdrawn behavior
- Preventable falls
- Inadequate supervision
