Types and Symptoms of Nursing Home Abuse

Not every case of nursing home negligence involves a medical professional. A staff member or even another resident may cause harm to your loved one. Specific guidelines established by state law are in place to maintain a healthy environment for nursing home residents.

Nursing home negligence can occur for any number of different reasons in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. But some forms of abuse and neglect are more common than others. Common examples of nursing home negligence we have seen involve one or more of the following factors:

  • Inadequate levels of staffing to maintain patient supervision
  • Failure to assist residents who are non-ambulatory (cannot walk on their own)
  • Malnutrition or dehydration due to poor nutritional supervision
  • Prescription drug errors in which a patient is not given medication they need, or in which the patient is given another patient’s medication

Your loved one may exhibit signs of negligence. They include:

  • Loss of weight
  • Bed sores
  • Unexplained injuries
  • A sudden change in personality

If a loved one has suffered abuse or neglect while at a nursing home, it is critical to seek immediate legal assistance. Your loved one may be injured, yet nursing home staff members and administration may deny wrongdoing. They may say they could have done nothing to prevent an injury or accident.
