Signs of Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
While it can be difficult to know whether an injury is the result of elder abuse or negligence, there are some key signs to look out for:
- Bedsores or decubitus ulcers
- Dehydration or malnutrition
- Bruises, cuts or broken bones
- Depression or sudden mood swings
- Grogginess from medications or chemical restraints
These types of injuries or signs may indicate a pattern of neglect or abuse. A resident who is not looked after may wander off the premises frequently and become injured. He or she may suffer serious infections from bedsores as a result of not being turned frequently enough or moved from a wheelchair.
Our attorneys are skilled investigators who will carefully examine the practices of the nursing home staff and administration. We will act as your advocates and guide you through the process of bringing a claim against the nursing home for your loved one’s injuries.
We work on a contingency basis. We don’t get paid unless you do.
