Nursing home abuse on the rise
Nearly everyone knows the population in the United States is aging. The aging "baby boomer" generation is resulting in a fast-growing elderly population. Many people are putting parents and grandparents into facilities - and trusting that their loved ones will be cared for. It's extremely likely there will be a need for many more beds in nursing homes in the decades to come.
Unfortunately, nursing homes sometimes fail to keep patients safe from harm. You may have grounds for a nursing home neglect lawsuit if it can be proved there was an act or omission, either by a caregiver or someone on staff, and that act or omission caused harm.
What constitutes nursing home abuse or neglect?
Nursing home abuse may take the form of physical abuse, emotional abuse or sexual abuse. Neglect also is common. A patient may be left alone, which can lead to bedsores or other serious infections. Other types of negligence include use of restraints or medication not authorized by a doctor.
We encourage anyone with a loved one in a nursing home to be vigilant. Look for signs of nursing home abuse or neglect, which may include:
- Unexplained bruises or other injuries
- Infections such as pressure ulcers (bed sores)
- Changes in mood or personality
- Weight loss (a sign of malnutrition)
- Bad odors (unsanitary conditions in the nursing home)
