When you place a family member in the care of an assisted living center or nursing home facility, you rightfully expect their caregivers to treat your loved one with the same amount of respect and love that you would in your own home. Should those standards not be met or upheld, you then have the legal right to file a claim for their negligence.
Numerous forms of nursing home abuse can take place in these facilities, as their staff may be untrained or overworked. Apart from physical abuse or mistreatment, your loved one may also suffer from nursing home neglect or abuse in the form of force feeding, mishandling, failure to provide treatment, under or overmedicating, inattention to requests for care, improper upkeep of cleanliness and hygiene, or even use of excess restraints.
Nursing home abuse or negligence is not to be taken lightly, as these may result in physical and emotional problems, and may also result in severe injuries and death.
Common signs of nursing home abuse to watch out for are cuts, scrapes, bruises, burns, bedsores, pressure sores, broken bones, malnutrition, and dehydration.
