Posts tagged "Nursing Home Neglect"

Video cameras are becoming popular in nursing homes

Nursing homes and other assisted-living facilities are good options for elderly residents who may not be able to handle their own care. Neglect of one's own care is difficult or impossible from which to recover. However, neglect by workers in nursing homes can be just as bad.

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.

You're the first line of defense against nursing home abuse

Nursing homes should be places where the elderly are cared for and safe. They should not have to worry about people taking advantage of them or neglecting their care. Sadly, nursing homes aren't always the places that they should be, and the elderly are often the ones who suffer.

Some think it's time to film the inside of nursing homes

Seniors should be able to enjoy their golden years with as much leisure as possible. That starts with making sure that people feel safe in their homes, especially group domiciles like assisted-living facilities. Although nursing home abuse and neglect is not especially common, it is enough of a problem that residents and their families are looking for more protections.

Overmedication: It happens, and it's not legal

Imagine that you place a loved one with dementia into a nursing home. They're already confused, and they sometimes lash out as a result. All it takes is patience and some time to calm them, and you hope that the facility's staff is capable of providing that.

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.

Dozens of nursing homes had serious problems in 2018

Good values for all Americans include honoring our parents and grandparents with the care they may need to enjoy their golden years. Therefore, it is sad and surprising that so many long-term care facilities geared towards the needs of senior citizens have chronic problems providing the best possible environment.

What are the safer types of nursing homes?

The best choice for enjoying the golden years can be a difficult one for seniors and their relatives. Thousands of aging people in Illinois require a little assistance to get through their days, and nursing homes or other assisted-living facilities can help with more serious care. This is only true, however, if these facilities are well-run.

Representing Those Who Work
