Nursing Home Negligence

 

Over 30% of nursing home residents experience abuse. These residents are subject to abuse, whether it is by staff or other residents. These include malnutrition, physical abuse, psychological issues, exploitation, neglect and sexual abuse.

 

Signs of nursing home neglect:

 

  • Falls
  • Bad hygiene
  • Bed sores (untreated)
  • Malnutrition/weight loss/dehydration
  • Substandard living conditions
  • Soiled clothes/bed linens
  • Medications not being administered (or being administered improperly)

 

Senior neglect, or nursing home negligence, generally occurs when a resident does not receive proper medical, physical, or emotional attention. As an outcome, neglect can pose serious risk of harm to victims. In certain cases, neglect may escalate to physical or emotional abuse.
