Is your loved one suffering from nursing home neglect or abuse?

Posted under Nursing Home Abuse

Knowing if your loved one is experiencing mistreatment in a long term care home is essential for his/her safety and overall health. It is, therefore, important to know of some indicators that might suggest your loved one is being neglected or abused in a nursing home.

To determine if your loved one is being mistreated, make sure to do the following:

  • Ask – The best way to know if your loved one is being abused or neglected is to directly ask him/her questions. Allow him/her to tell you his/her experiences, and what he/she feels.
  • Inspect – Pressure sores, malnutrition, dehydration, and unexplained cuts might all indicate nursing home abuse and neglect.
  • Identify – Determine if the nursing home bears any records of abuse and neglect. Know the staff. Notice if the staff interact with the residents with perceived sympathy and kindness.
