Do You Suspect Nursing Home Abuse? Learn More About Common Signs.
It is distressing to discover that your beloved mother, father, wife, husband or other family member is suffering from neglect or abuse in a nursing home.
The following signs may have led you to seek out an attorney for advice:
- Red marks on arms or other parts of the body
- Skin breakdown
- Evidence of poor hygiene
- Evidence of dehydration
- Evidence of malnutrition (weight loss, perhaps)
- Complaints of psychological abuse
- Evidence of unsupervised wandering off
Perhaps another resident, family member of another resident or even a nurse from the home tipped you off.
Whatever possible signs of abuse you are following up on, a lawyer experienced in handling nursing home abuse and neglect cases can give you a road map for correcting the wrongdoing.
