Nursing Home Negligence Warning Signs

Nursing home negligence is notoriously hard to detect because of the limited time family and loved ones actually spend in the nursing facility. When doctors, nurses, and caretakers are aware that they are not fulfilling their duties, they may also take measures to hide evidence of any mistreatment by the time their residents receive visitors.

Common indicators of nursing home negligence include:

  • Sudden change in demeanor or personality
  • Missing or broken personal items
  • Acute anxiety whenever nursing staff is present
  • Unexplained bruising or signs of restraint use
  • Sudden loss of weight (or other signs of malnutrition)
  • Decline in hygiene
  • Bedsores
  • Unsanitary conditions

If have recognized any of these signs—or any other evidence that you believe is suspicious—then it may be time to contact legal counsel. Our firm is ready to assist your family with the steps needed to secure the well-being of your elderly family member, establish the gravity of the nursing facility's failure, and aggressively pursue the compensation appropriate for this miscarriage of medical care.
