Examples of Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Almost one in every three nursing homes in the United States has been cited for an abuse or violation, with falls being the leading cause of injury-related deaths in elderly Americans.
Nursing home abuse and neglect can take many forms. It can be physical, mental, emotional, sexual, or financial in nature. In nearly every instance, the impact of nursing home abuse and/or neglect is extensive and far-reaching.
At Grewal Law PLLC, we represent clients in all types of nursing home abuse and neglect claims, including those involving:
- Bed sores/decubitus ulcers
- Malnourishment and dehydration
- Insufficient or lack of supervision
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medication mistakes, including overdoses
- Mental, emotional, and sexual abuse of nursing home residents by staff or fellow residents
- Failure to provide adequate medical care or recognize medical emergencies and injuries
- Financial abuse of nursing home residents
- Physical abuse by nursing home employees or other residents
If you are the victim of nursing home abuse or you suspect your loved one is suffering from neglect in a professional nursing home facility, contact a Michigan nursing home abuse attorney right away. It is important that you act quickly so that we can start building a case on your behalf.
Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
In many cases, elderly victims of nursing home abuse/neglect are not able or not willing to speak up for themselves. This makes them vulnerable targets for abuse and neglect. It also means that you should be aware of the signs of abuse and neglect so that you can take swift action at the first hint of improper conduct.
Some of the most common signs of nursing home abuse and/or neglect include:
- Unexplained injuries, such as bruises, cuts, or broken bones
- Bed sores, also known as decubitus or pressure ulcers
- Asphyxiation and other bed injuries
- Broken hips and other injuries sustained in falls
- Signs of malnutrition and/or dehydration
- Rapid weight loss or weight gain
- Unsanitary sheets, blankets, and/or clothes
- Over- or under-medicated nursing home residents
- Sudden, unexplained changes in behavior or mood
- Unusual agitation, withdrawal, or isolation
- Wandering and/or elopement
- Unusual withdrawals from a bank account
- Changes to a will or trust
- Injuries requiring immediate emergency hospitalization
If you notice any of these signs or any other indicators of abuse or neglect (including a gut feeling that something is “not right”), reach out to an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer in Michigan. Our firm can help you determine your legal options and fight to protect your rights.
