Common Forms Of Abuse And Signs Of Neglect
Nursing home abuse or neglect can take many forms. Many instances involve inadequate supervision of residents due to understaffing or inadequate training. Others involve willful actions by nurses, orderlies and other staff members.
We handle a wide range of nursing home negligence lawsuits, including those involving:
- Bedsores: Decubitus ulcers resulting from unclean bedding or failing to move the resident sufficiently from lying in one location
- Wandering off: Frequently referred to as elopement, putting the resident in danger of accidents outside of the facility
- Physical assault, battery: Resulting from staff or residents physical mistreatment
- Sexual assault: Improper sexual contact perpetrated by staff or other residents
- Dehydration: Lack of proper liquids throughout the day
- Malnutrition: Improper meals according to the client’s personal care plan
- Nursing home falls: Injuries occurring while rolling over in bed, trying to stand, walk or transfer to or from a wheelchair
If your loved one’s injury was the result of nursing home staff negligence, we can help you fight for compensation plus help put a stop to staff abuse.
