Indicators Of A Serious Problem
Many victims of various types of nursing home abuse and negligence do not report what they experienced because they are afraid, ashamed or unable to do so. Family members may notice certain signs that could indicate potential issues, such as neglect. Some common indicators of nursing home negligence include:
- Your loved one has lost weight or is suffering from issues related to dehydration.
- There is evidence of unsanitary conditions in the facilities or in the patient’s room.
- Unexplained injuries and bruises could indicate a lack of supervision or abuse.
- Your family member is withdrawn or showing other signs of depression.
