Signs of Nursing Home Neglect

Our personal injury lawyer at the Cloon Law Firm in Leawood, Kansas, represents families who have suffered abuse or neglect in a nursing home. We believe it is critical to obtain compensation for people who have suffered nursing home abuse. It is also critical to punish sub-standard facilities so that such abuse and neglect issues do not reoccur or get worse and cause a wrongful death. For an attorney dedicated to improving the level of care provided by nursing homes, contact the Kansas office of Bryson Cloon. We offer a initial consultation, and there is no obligation to you.

Signs of Nursing Home Neglect

Because of the poor training, insufficient government reimbursement, and inadequate staffing characteristic of many facilities for the elderly, signs of problems associated with poor hygiene and lack of supervision are often noticed first by family members rather than staff. If you observe that your loved one in a nursing home exhibits bedsores or ulcers, has unexplained fractures such as a broken hip, suffers from malnutrition or dehydration, wanders from the facility, or has fallen out of bed, suspect nursing home neglect. If you learn about medication errors or improper use of restraints, contact a nursing home neglect lawyer immediately.

Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse occurs less frequently, but when it does, it must be stopped. Being sued by a dedicated attorney can convince a nursing home owner to change their approach to provision of care. If your loved one becomes withdrawn for no apparent reason, exhibits fear of staff, or talks about being hit, slapped or shaken, take it seriously. In addition, if your elderly family member appears to have given money away to a fellow-resident or staff member, contact a knowledgeable attorney right away. These are signs of nursing home abuse.
