Types of Negligence
Unfortunately, evidence indicates that nursing home abuse and negligence are on the rise. Both young and old can fall victim to negligent care and abuse in nursing care facilities.
Many elderly patients are injured and die as a result of caregivers who:
- Fail to provide them with necessary food and liquids
- Don’t turn them in their beds to prevent life-threatening bedsores
- Leave them unattended, resulting in falls
- Provide incorrect medicines or dosages
According to the National Center on Elder Abuse, it was reported that elder who experience abuse have a 300% higher risk of death than those who have not been abused. It’s important to hire legal representation if you fear your loved one is in danger at their nursing home.
Signs of Negligence
Since you most likely won’t be around to witness the nursing home negligence occurring, it’s important to keep an eye out for warning signs.
Signs your loved one may be suffering from negligence or abuse include:
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Unsanitary conditions
- Complaints of poor treatment
- Untimely or unexplained death
- Medication errors or overdoses
