Nursing home negligence comes in a variety of forms
Unfortunately, there is a growing problem of neglect and abuse in nursing homes. Workers in these facilities tend to be poorly paid and are often unqualified to hold their positions or incapable of performing certain tasks. Additionally, owners or managers of nursing homes may let the premises fall into a state of disrepair, meaning that residents must live in an environment that is not conducive to good health.
At The Law Offices of Craig L. Cook, we make it our mission to educate people on the dangers of nursing home neglect and save victims from abuse. Signs of nursing home abuse may include:
- Physical injuries. Common problems in nursing homes include broken bones, bed sores, bruises, medication overdoses and head injuries.
- Emotional or behavioral changes. Complaints about the staff or conditions at the nursing home are obvious indicators of potential abuse or neglect, but in many cases, the victims are afraid to speak out. Look for things like unusual agitation, withdrawal, unexplained fear or frequent bouts of crying.
- Signs of neglect. If your loved one appears to be dehydrated or malnourished, has poor hygiene or soiled bedding, he or she may be a victim of nursing home neglect.
When you notice any of these signs or have any other concerns about the state of your loved one’s nursing home care, contact our attorneys immediately. We investigate the facility and seek legal action if necessary.
