Signs of Nursing Home Injuries
Many nursing home residents fail to report mistreatment, often because of cognitive decline or fear of retaliation by staff members. It is important for visiting loved ones to keep an eye out for possible signs of neglect or abuse, which can include:
- Physical injuries without proper explanation and in various stages of healing
- Sexually-transmitted diseases or injured sexual areas
- Changes in behavior, such as acting withdrawn or fearful
- Being afraid of certain staff members
- Weight loss or gain without explanation
- Medical issues that are worsening due to a lack of treatment
Whether you suspect that neglect or physical, sexual, or emotional abuse has occurred, you should discuss the matter with a trusted attorney.
