What are the Signs of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect?
Nursing homes are required to meet the needs of each resident. There is never an excuse for a nursing home to provide unsafe conditions or substandard care to your loved one or family member. Here are some areas of negligence and abuse we see in the cases we handle:
- BED SORES (PRESSURE SORES)
- SEXUAL ABUSE
- PHYSICAL ABUSE
- RESTRAINT & BEDRAIL
- WANDERING & ELOPEMENT
- MEDICATION ERRORS
- CLOGGED BREATHING TUBES
If you suspect that your loved one has been the victim of abuse or neglect in a nursing home, you should take steps to protect the resident. Immediately contact the state agency that investigates claims of elderly abuse and file a detailed report. If necessary, file a complaint with the local police department. At a minimum, confront the nursing home management and demand that changes be made to protect the resident.
If your loved one or family member has experienced one or more of these signs of nursing home abuse or neglect, call the Terry Law Firm for a free initial consultation.
