Detecting Signs of Nursing Home Negligence

Because family and friends are not always present with elderly nursing home residents, determining any abuse or neglect can be difficult. Still, there are signs that are commonly present that, if found consistently or markedly, should be a significant concern.

Nursing home negligence can commonly result in:

  • Dramatic change in resident's personality or demeanor
  • Increased resident anxiety or depression
  • Sudden loss of weight (or other indications of malnutrition)
  • Unsanitary conditions in the resident's room
  • A noticeable decline in resident's hygiene
  • Unexplained bruising
  • Missing or broken personal items
  • Bedsores or other signs of declining health

If you believe that your elderly loved one is being subjected to neglect or abuse, securing their well-being is the number one priority. Our firm can help you manage this transition and, if necessary, immediately start structuring a malpractice claim that speaks the extent of your nursing facility’s failure to care for your loved one.

It can be possible to correct the wrongs done against you and your loved ones. Call our firm at 503.616.6441 today.
