Nursing Home Residents
Nursing home residents are extremely vulnerable to every manner of risk. When the very people who are employed to care for nursing home residents either neglect to provide them with the necessary level of care (neglect) or actively harm them (abuse), it’s a devastating development that should give us all pause.
Nursing Home Neglect
Nursing home neglect lacks the purposeful action of nursing home abuse, but it can be just as harmful – especially in light of the fact that nursing home neglect often goes undetected until the damage caused becomes more advanced and, thus, more noticeable. While nursing home neglect can manifest in a wide range of forms, the most common include:
- Residents who don’t receive adequate food and/or nutrition
- Residents who don’t receive a healthy amount of water and become dehydrated as a result
- Residents who live in unsanitary or unsafe conditions
- Residents who don’t receive the medications they need
- Residents who go without clean, comfortable clothing
- Residents who don’t receive the assistance with personal hygiene they need
