Neglect
 

North Carolina Nursing Home Neglect Attorney

People are placed in nursing homes for the simple reason that they can no longer care for themselves. Many nursing home residents require day-to-day assistance for even the most basic needs. Although some nursing home residents are still somewhat independent, there are others entirely dependent on the aid and assistance they receive from the nursing home staff. When a nursing home fails to provide a resident with the care and attention he or she needs is referred to as neglect.

If you suspect your loved one is neglected in a nursing home, you should speak with an experienced North Carolina nursing home negligence attorney as soon as possible. When a resident or patient does not receive his or her medication, is not properly fed, or is not provided with basic care, his or her health can rapidly deteriorate.

Examples of Neglect

There are several signs that may indicate your loved one has been neglected, including:

  • The presence of bedsores anywhere on the body
  • Signs of malnutrition or dehydration
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Soiled linens or undergarments
  • Unclean or unsanitary living conditions
  • Unchanged bandages or dressings

Not only is it important to provide residents with proper care and attention, but also nursing homes are  legally responsible for providing proper supervision at all times. When a resident wanders off - especially if he or she suffers from Alzheimer's disease or dementia - they can easily hurt themselves or even have a panic attack if they feel lost or overwhelmed by unfamiliar surroundings.
