Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
When you place a loved one in a nursing home, you expect that they will be treated with dignity and respect. You rightfully expect that they will receive proper nutrition, hygiene, and medical treatment. Unfortunately, this does not always occur. An estimated one in three nursing homes across the country has been implicated in some form of abuse or neglect.
If your loved one currently resides at a nursing home in North or South Carolina, it is important to be aware of signs that could indicate negligence or abuse:
- Unsanitary living conditions
- Poor personal hygiene
- Unexplained or recurring injuries
- Burns, bruises, and abrasions
- Bed sores
- Torn, stained, or bloody bedding or clothing
- Sudden and unexplained weight loss
- Emotional withdrawal
- Sudden and unusual financial transactions
- Disappearance of personal items
- Listlessness or lack of communication
If you have noticed these signs, please call our offices at (866) 691-0607. We will be happy to talk to you about what has occurred to see how we can help.
