Nursing home dangers: Report injuries and protect your loved ones

Nursing home neglect is something no one expects to have to deal with. Unfortunately, it becomes a reality for some patients. Whether through intentional misconduct or because of oversights, many patients fall victim to poor care and may be hurt or killed as a result.

If you are placing your loved one into a nursing home, it's essential that you get to know the staff and make sure you're comfortable with the facility. A single visit to the facility simply isn't enough; You need to take the time to fully explore the facility, see what it offers and how it treats its staff. If there is a high turnover among employees or it seems impossible to find someone to speak to, it's likely that the nursing home is not staffed well enough to support the number of residents currently living there.

The biggest problem for patients who end up in nursing homes with neglectful staff members or other problems is that neglect and abuse can be hard to see. Even if it's just one staff member causing abuse, others may not be able to recognize the injuries or danger that the residents are in.

Of course, family members should take the time to explore facilities, but there is no guarantee that their loved one won't face harm. If your loved one is hurt because of a staff member's negligence or other oversights, it's important that you speak up and allow your attorney to help with your case. Getting your loved one appropriate care will always be the goal and preferred outcome.
