We Represent Victims Of Nursing Home Dehydration And Malnutrition
Nursing homes must ensure that residents are well-nourished and that they consume sufficient fluids to remain healthy.
Understanding The Devastation Of Dehydration And Malnutrition On Seniors
Unfortunately, all too often, seniors are neglected by staff or failures in care occur and seniors become malnourished or dehydrated.
- Dehydration — Dehydration can begin taking a toll on a senior in a relatively short time. The most likely scenario is not that a senior will have no access to fluids, but that he or she will not receive enough fluids. Living in an extended state of dehydration can have a serious impact on anyone’s health.
- Malnutrition — Not receiving enough nutrition will not have as dramatic an impact as dehydration, so it can be harder to detect.
The effects of dehydration and malnutrition are made worse by other medical conditions. For example, if your senior loved one is diabetic, malnutrition and dehydration can have a major, even fatal, impact.
Even for those not suffering from other health conditions, dehydration and malnutrition can create harmful chemical imbalances.
