If you are concerned that a loved one is the victim of nursing home neglect, there are certain signs you can look out for. Although the types of neglect are long and complicated, the following abuses are the most common types found in negligent nursing homes.
If a home fails to provide proper hydration and nutrition, you have a reason for concern. In addition, the home must provide assistance in personal hygiene whenever needed by aged patient. You should check that your loved one is getting the correct medicines, at the proper dosages, throughout the day. Should you find your loved one in soiled sheets, or notice that they have not been turned in their beds (to prevent bedsores), you should contact a personal injury lawyer immediately.
Nursing homes must provide a safe environment for their residents, including taking measures to prevent falls. In addition, call lights must be answered quickly and efficiently by the nursing staff.
