Nursing Home Neglect

When the needs and care of a loved one are more than a family can handle, nursing homes provide the assistance the family is no longer able to provide. Unfortunately, not all nursing homes provide the care and assistance that families expect.

Patients of nursing homes are among the most vulnerable individuals in our society. Depending on their needs, they are dependent on others much like children.

While most nursing homes provide a safe environment for their patients, there are nursing homes that are understaffed and/or hire employees who are inexperienced and even abusive to the patients. When a nursing home fails to provide the care expected, the nursing home may be held responsible.

As a family member of a nursing home patient, it is important to be aware of how your loved one is being treated. Some of the symptoms of nursing home negligence and/or abuse may include:

  • Severe Weight Loss and/or Malnutrition
  • Bedsores
  • Poor Hygiene
  • Inattentive Staff
  • Falls
  • Fractures
  • Unexplained injuries and/or bruises
  • Assault by other patients/staff
  • Dehydration
  • Infections
  • Unsanitary Conditions of Facility
  • Lack of Communication
  • Strange Behavior Changes
  • Failure to Monitor
