Identifying Nursing Home Negligence

When your loved one is in a nursing home, you want the absolute best care. However, the sad truth is that nursing home negligence does happen, making it your duty to be observant of your loved one's conditions when you visit.

Some abuse does manifest itself in the form of bruises and scars, but you also need to be aware of the other common signs of nursing home abuse. If your loved one has bedsores, appears to be dehydrated or starving, these are telltale signs of negligence that must be addressed. Should you see one or all of these signs, you must approach the nursing home management immediately.

If you voice your concerns and find that nothing changes, or the management does not seem concerned with the issues you discuss, it may be time to take further action. You can speak with the local authorities about your concerns and in some cases you may also want to speak with a North Carolina personal injury attorney who can advise you of your options. Contact our legal team to get help today!
