Has a loved one been hurt by abuse or neglect at a nursing home?
Every nursing home resident deserves the utmost respect, dignity, and care. Sadly, nursing home negligence has become an all too frequent occurrence among the elderly population. Making matters worse, some nursing home residents do not have the ability to stand-up for themselves and report negligent behavior given those residents’ mental status.
That is why it is vital for loved ones to look for classic signs of nursing home negligence, including:
- Sprains or broken bones
- Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)
- Burns or bruises mysteriously appearing
- Repetitive injuries
- Torn or bloody clothing
- Sudden changes in behavior
- Onset of depression or confusion
- Unexplained loss of weight
- Loss of appetite
- Appearance of bedsores
- Skin rashes, messy clothes, or dirty hair
