Nursing Home Abuse
Oftentimes, when one decides to send their parent or loved one to a nursing home it is because their needs can no longer fulfilled at home and they must be sent to a specialized center that can work with them around the clock. However, one does not expect for their loved one to be physically and emotionally abused. If you believe that your loved one has been a victim of nursing home abuse, the first step is to ensure that they are removed from that dangerous environment.
Some signs that may indicate that abuse is taking place is if you see:
• Unexplained bruises and cuts
• Torn or bloody clothing
• Broken bones
• Soiled clothing or bed linens
• Malnourishment or dehydration
• Or unexplained bank transactions
These nursing homes and assisted living facilities take advantage of the frail state that many of their patients are currently in. The caretakers see it as an opportunity to get what they want, whether it be monetary or sexually.
In any such case, it is important to consult an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer for helping you advocate for you or your loved one. Working with an experienced and knowledgeable nursing home abuse attorney could mean that the abuse issue could be negotiated and settled without trial.
