Nursing Home Negligence

Everyone with a loved one in a long-term care facility hopes that their elderly relative is safe and happy—and that their physical and emotional health is supported by qualified, caring staff. But sometimes, despite even the best research, a resident of a nursing home becomes the victim of abuse and negligence. The signs of elder abuse are many and vary from one victim to the next, but some of common signs of neglect among abused residents include:

  • An emotionally upset or agitated resident
  • Too much or too little medication provided
  • Is heavy sedated or physically restrained
  • Is extremely withdrawn or is non-communicative
  • Exhibits unusual behavior, such as thumb sucking, rocking, or biting
  • Has unexplained injuries or frequent infections
  • Experiences an incident involving broken bones
  • Suffers from bed sores, dehydration, and/or malnutrition
  • Disregard for daily necessities
