Macon Nursing Home Neglect/Abuse Attorney
If your loved one has been injured by either nursing home neglect or abuse, the emotional toll it takes on you can be considerable. The fact that you trusted the facility to provide your aging relative with the care and attention necessary to continue living life to its fullest can be a real blow, but nursing home neglect and abuse are more common than most people realize. If you find yourself in this tragic situation, an experienced Macon nursing home neglect/abuse attorney is well-positioned to help you obtain just compensation that fairly addresses your loved one’s complete losses.
What Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Looks Like
The fact is that nursing home neglect can be very difficult to detect because it involves an absence of adequate care that can take a considerable amount of time for those on the outside to notice. For example, if your loved one is not receiving adequate nutrition or hydration, the signs can be slow to present. Further, if your aging relative’s medication schedule isn’t carefully adhered to, you may not know about it for a while. This is not to say, however, that nursing home neglect is not exceptionally dangerous.
Nursing home abuse, on the other hand, is generally more dramatic – and is even more egregious because it is intentional. Signs of nursing home abuse can include:
- A precipitous drop in weight
- Pronounced signs of dehydration
- Unexplained injuries, including bruising
- An unexplained change in personality or demeanor
- A newly acquired tendency to self-isolate
