How can I spot the dangers of nursing home abuse?

If a loved one is living in a nursing home or assisted-living facility, visits can be difficult. Rest homes may have a certain ambiance shaped by the effort it takes to keep residents healthy and happy. Beyond any sort of mood that may seem evident in a nursing home, it is important to look for any details that may show a place is an unsuitable home.

What is the largest risk that seniors face in nursing homes?

There are many significant risks for seniors in any situation, such as the increased danger of a traumatic injury in a fall or other incident. Nursing homes should do their best to restrict movement to avoid these dangers. In addition, infections and other problems caused by unsanitary environments are more likely to seriously affect older people.

What are the risks that seniors face due to nursing home staff conduct?

Nursing home clinicians and support staff are responsible for the proper feeding and medicating of residents. Any sign of malnutrition, dehydration or unusual behavior may indicate that these duties have not been fulfilled. In rarer occasions, a staff member may have assaulted a patient, leading to otherwise unexplained signs of trauma.

What should someone do if they suspect abuse or neglect in a nursing home?

Elder patients who have been abused or neglected in an assisted-living facility have the right to challenge the people and organizations responsible to stop their bad practices and pay damages for the damage done. An attorney can help victims and their families rule which of their options is the right one.
