If your relative has been harmed by nursing home neglect or abuse, discuss your concerns with an experienced Madison nursing home neglect/abuse attorney today.
Recognizing the Signs
Because nursing home neglect typically refers to inadequate care, the signs that neglect is happening can take longer to present. Nursing home neglect often relates to the following types of failure to provide adequate care:
- Failing to provide adequate nutrition and hydration, which can lead to weight loss, dehydration, and chronic UTIs
- Failing to provide the correct medications in the correct dosages at the correct times, which can lead to an unexplained decrease in overall health
- Failing to provide the assistance necessary for residents to attend to their personal hygiene, which can lead to a disheveled, dirty appearance
- Failing to keep walkways cleared of dangerous tripping hazards, which can lead to unexplained falls and associated injuries
If you notice any of the above signs or anything else that concerns you, don’t be afraid to speak up.
Because nursing home abuse involves intentional harm, the signs tend to be more dramatic and can take the form of a significant change in your loved one’s personality or demeanor. If your aging relative is suddenly fearful and/or anxious, it’s time to act.
