Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home neglect or abuse is one of the fastest growing forms of litigation in the U.S. The goal of nursing home care is to provide medical attention to people in need for post operative care, skilled nursing care, medical condition management and long term care. The signs of nursing home abuse or neglect include:

  • Injuries
  • Sedation
  • Rapid weight gain or loss, including food deprivation
  • Illnesses that are not disclosed to family members
  • Wandering off premises
  • Physical Restraint
  • Delayed diagnosis and treatment
  • Neglect of daily living activities
  • Improper hygiene of body, nails, and/or hair
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Bed Sores
  • Physical assault such as pushing, shaking, or beating
  • Unexplained upset or fear
  • Childlike behaviors such as thumb sucking or rocking
  • Dehydration
  • Medical Errors
