Spotting Signs of Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Unfortunately, detecting whether or not abuse or neglect is happening at
your loved one's nursing home can sometimes be difficult. Visiting
family and friends are not always in the facility long enough to spot
evidence of any wrongdoing. When neglect or abuse is significant enough,
however, there will be unmistakable signs that call for immediate action.
The most common signs of nursing home abuse and neglect include:
- A significant decline in hygiene
- An unexplained change in the resident's mood or personality
- A dramatic decrease in weight or other health concerns
- Unsanitary conditions in the resident room or in the facility
- Broken or missing personal items
- Unexplained bruises or cuts
- Any signs of unnecessary restraints
- Any pressure ulcers ("bedsores")
If you have witnessed one or more of these signs—or have already
moved your loved one from a facility that harmed them—then our dedicated
team is ready to hear from you. Call us today speak with a proven and
aggressive South Bend personal injury attorney ready to help hold the
responsible parties accountable for their actions.
