ABUSE & NEGLECT IN ASSISTED LIVING FACILITIES & NURSING HOMES
Neglect in assisted living and nursing home facilities is a serious issue that can lead to personal injury, pain, suffering, or even wrongful death. Neglect manifests in many ways, ranging from things like not providing appropriate medical care or turning a blind eye to physical abuse to not providing access to food and water or not regularly repositioning an immobile patient.
Warning signs of abuse and neglect include:
- Unexplained injuries, bruises, and/or broken bones
- Frequent falls
- Dehydration and malnutrition
- Sudden and unexplained change in patient attitude and communicativeness
- Inadequate staffing in the nursing home or caregiving facility
