Choosing the right nursing home for an elderly parent or loved one is an
important but often overwhelming task. Any instance of nursing home neglect
is one instance too many, but abuse does still happen in very places that
are supposed to provide proper care for elderly adults. If you suspect

or assisted living facility, it’s important that you get in contact
with an experienced nursing home abuse attorney as soon as possible. The

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.
