Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

 

Making the decision to place a loved one in a nursing home is never an easy one. When the decision is finally made, however, you put your trust into that facility and it's staff to take care of your loved one as you would. While some nursing home facilities provide excellent care to the elderly, there are some that do not practice the standard of care that a facility in their position should provide. Even well-established nursing home facilities will occasionally experience the neglect or abuse of one of their patients. Finding out that your trust has been abused and your loved one mistreated is difficult to deal with. When that loved one has been hurt by the negligent or intentional act of another, the law provides you and your family protection.

 

Nursing home abuse and neglect occurs far too often. Abuse can be Physical (e.g. unreasonable restraints, assaults and/or inappropriate drugging) and/or Psychological. In addition to physical and/or psychological abuse, nursing homes can be guilty of neglect, which can be physical but can also occur when the staff fails to properly supervise the residents. Unfortunately, this neglect or abuse can result in significant injuries including death. Because the nursing home industry has become a multi-billion dollar business comprised of major corporations, efficiency and profitability have often become more important than administering proper care. For this reason, both federal and state governments have introduced legislation to protect residents of nursing homes.

 

Warning Signs of nursing home abuse:

-Bedsores

-Weight loss

-Excessive sleeping

-Injuries that cannot be explained

-Theft of resident's property

-Poor hygiene

 

If you believe that your loved one has been the defenseless victim of nursing home neglect or abuse, you need someone to speak for your loved ones as well as for your family.
