Protection For Your Senior Loved One
The decision to put a loved one into a nursing home is one that no one approaches lightly. Everyone wants the best possible care for their senior loved one, and they apply a high degree of scrutiny to the various available facilities before turning their loved one over to a nursing home.
Unfortunately, even the most thorough investigation may not reveal potential abuse or neglect that your senior loved one might face.
If you suspect that he or she is being abused or his or her needs are not being fully met by the nursing home, you need to begin taking action as soon as possible. We can help you hold the nursing home accountable for any injuries your senior loved one suffered due to their abuse or neglect.
Common types of nursing home injuries include:
- Bed sores (pressure injuries) — When staff fails to turn bedridden patients often enough, pressure injuries can result. These are serious injuries that, if left untreated, can lead to life-threatening infections.
- Dehydration and malnutrition — Seniors with Alzheimer’s and other mental issues may be not be able to report that they are not being given enough to eat or drink. It is up to the staff to ensure that these basic needs are being met.
- Falls — Some seniors may not be able to get out of bed without assistance. These patients require a plan that will keep them from falling out of bed and help them get out when they need to use the restroom or do some other activity.
Some of the other issues that can occur include:
- Physical abuse
