Nursing Home Abuse/Neglect
Many factors can contribute to nursing home abuse, including underqualified or abusive staff members, insufficient training and broader institutional negligence. In decades of combined personal injury practice, the attorneys of Mezibov Butler have developed essential experience investigating the causes of injury, determining who was responsible and holding those parties accountable under the law.
Signs Of Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect
If you have a loved one in a long-term care facility who is exhibiting symptoms of abuse, it is essential to take swift action to protect his or her safety. Recognizing abuse and contacting an attorney quickly can also protect important legal rights. Nursing home neglect can take many forms, including:
- Bedsores, also called pressure ulcers
- Dehydration or malnutrition
- Injuries from falls
- Unexplained weight loss
- Wandering off due to poor supervision
While physical symptoms may be the easiest to see, the emotional effects of neglect and abuse are just as damaging. If your loved one appears withdrawn, fearful or isolated, talk to him or her about your concerns. Consider speaking to an attorney if you believe elder abuse or neglect may have occurred.
