Understaffed, Undertrained, Lack of Supervision, Unsanitary Living Conditions. These are just a few of the terms used within various reports in recent years that have been associated with an escalating trend of nursing home abuse and neglect cases throughout the country.
While many nursing homes have taken on the challenge of bringing their facilities and services up to acceptable standards in an effort to reduce and eliminate abuse and neglect in their elderly care facilities, others have not.
Few things affect a family more than finding out the matriarch, provider, or protector of their family is being subjected to abuse, neglect, or living under conditions that may cause them harm, injuries, or even death. This is not only socially and morally unacceptable, but unlawful as well.
Signs of nursing home abuse and neglect often include, but are not limited to:
- Unexplained or Frequent Physical Injuries;
- Malnutrition or Dehydration;
- Improper or Over Medication;
- Sudden Weight Loss or Weight Gain;
- An Unexplained or Suspicious Death;
- Bed Sores;
- Drastically Diminished Personal Hygiene;
- Unsanitary Conditions;
- Accusations or Signs of Sexual Assault;
- Signs of Physical or Chemical Restraints.
