Similar to malnutrition, dehydration remains of the largest caused and signs of nursing home abuse. While nursing homes are required to provide their clients with the proper amount of support, giving them the essentials, but this is not always what occurs. Unfortunately, in many situations, these facilities can fail to care for their patients – caused by a lack of staff, too tight of a budget or even maliciously abusive staff members.
Dehydration is a dangerous situation to befall an elderly loved one. In this situation, the elder simply does not have the fluids that they require – that can be from simply not drinking as much as they need or from medical issues that cause them to lose fluids. Regardless, it is the responsibility of the nursing home to care for them and look after their well-being. If they fail in this, the family of the victim could have grounds to seek legal recourse and could fight for financial compensation.
