Common Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Often, when neglect or abuse occurs in an adult care facility, the affected individuals are unable or unwilling to speak out. It is important to know the signs of potential nursing home abuse so you can safeguard the health, safety, and happiness of your loved one. If you notice any signs of abuse, neglect, or mistreatment, contact an attorney as soon as possible.

Some common signs of nursing home neglect and abuse include:

  • Bedsores or decubitus ulcers
  • Sudden changes in mood or behavior
  • Symptoms of malnutrition or dehydration
  • Under- or over-medicating
  • Sepsis or infections
  • Failure to provide requested medical care
  • Wandering or elopement
  • Unexplained bruises or other injuries
  • Sudden, unexplained death

At Hare Wynn, we proudly represent both residents and their families who have suffered as a result of nursing home negligence or abuse. We believe that those facilities that claim to provide honest care but fail to do so should be held accountable. We make it our mission to fight for the rights of those who cannot fight for themselves.

How to Select the Right Nursing Home for Your Loved One

One of the best ways to protect your loved one from the threat of nursing home abuse is to select a facility that is known for providing reliable, honest care for its residents. It can feel overwhelming with so much on the line, but there are a few key factors to look for when choosing a nursing home for your elderly parent or family member.

When selecting a nursing home, it is wise to:

  • Ask whether or not the nursing home has insurance
  • Keep an eye out for arbitration clauses that limit the facility’s liability
  • Check the nursing home’s star review rating and patient reviews
  • Meet the nurses, assistants, and staff and tour the premises in person
  • Observe the interactions between staff members and residents
  • Check the cleanliness and sanitization levels of the property
  • Check the ratio of staff to residents and general condition of the facility

Despite best efforts, nursing home abuse still does occur. This may take the form of physical, mental, emotional, or sexual abuse—and the results can be devastating. If you or a loved one has suffered abuse at the hands of a nursing home facility or staff member, reach out to one of our nursing home abuse attorneys right away. Our team can help you fight for the justice and compensation you deserve in Alabama and Nationwide!
