Signs of Nursing Home Neglect
Much like nursing home abuse, neglect is serious. When the elderly loved ones in the care of nursing homes and assisted living facilities are not properly cared for, this may result in serious illness, injury, or even wrongful death. Although direct physical or sexual abuse may not be occurring, negligence can be just as harmful.
This is why it is important to look out for potential signs of neglect, such as:
- Weight loss
- Untreated physical injuries or illnesses
- Lack of proper personal hygiene
- Unsanitary living conditions
- Dirty or unkempt clothing
- Negligently maintained property grounds
- Accidents, such as slip and falls or similar occurrences
- Wandering due to negligence in watching the elder resident
- Lack of proper medical treatment
Staying in close contact with your elderly loved one and visiting the facility frequently are ways that you can stay informed regarding his or her treatment at the nursing home. If you observe any signs of neglect or feel that the caregivers or facility are being negligent in any way, please do not hesitate to talk to a nursing home negligence attorney about your concerns. A lawyer can look further into the matter and can help you take legal action against the facility for physical and emotional injuries.
