Butts County Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Attorney
It is difficult to think about cases of nursing home neglect and abuse. After all, we trust our aging loved one’s care and safekeeping to these medical facilities, and when the outcome is in such stark contrast to the goal, it can be exceptionally difficult to accept. If your loved one has suffered from nursing home neglect or abuse, turn to an experienced Butts County nursing home neglect and abuse lawyer for the professional legal counsel you need.
Every nursing home neglect or abuse case is singular to the circumstances involved, but the injuries caused can generally be categorized as follows:
- Physical Injuries – Neglect can lead to injuries such as malnutrition, dehydration, and UTIs from inadequate nutrition and hydration, to bruises and breaks from tripping hazards left unchecked, and to injuries caused by failing to receive the appropriate medications in the appropriate dosages – to name a few. Because abuse is purposeful, however, it can cause any form of physical injury, including fatal injuries.
- Emotional Damages – Abuse and neglect can cause more than physical harm. They can also leave the victim emotionally damaged. If your loved one exhibits unexplained behaviors that concern you, it could be a sign of emotional distress. Watch for signs of withdrawal, increased anxiety, and symptoms associated with depression.
- Financial Damages – Nursing home abuse can include financial damage, such as interfering in or even taking over a resident’s finances for one’s own gain.
