What Are the Signs of Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse?
Any unexpected or unexplained injury or death in a nursing home could indicate the presence of abuse or neglect. Our Portland elder law attorney encourages you to be mindful of your loved one’s behaviors and physical conditions. Some of the more common injuries associated with nursing home abuse claims include:
- Bed sores (also referred to as pressure sores or decubitus ulcers)
- Broken bones, hip fractures
- Injuries resulting from falls (understaffed facilities, elopement or residents wandering unattended, or residents escaping through an unlocked door)
- Health complications resulting from malnutrition or dehydration
- Injuries and deaths caused by medication errors
Do not wait to contact a lawyer if you suspect any type of abuse or neglect. By taking this action, you enable us to begin an independent investigation that could prevent crucial pieces of evidence from being lost.
