Identifying Nursing Home Neglect

Nursing home negligence occurs when a facilities administrators and nursing staff don’t provide the services necessary to promote and maintain a resident’s health or safety. This includes taking reasonable precautions to keep residents safe from physical harm and mental anguish. Some common signs of nursing home neglect include bed sores, dehydration and falls resulting in injury or broken bones. Neglect may be due to a caregiver’s failure to assist in personal hygiene or provide necessary medical and dietary services.

Did your loved one fall in a nursing home?

The most common type of nursing home injury cases involve residents that are hurt or killed due to a fall. Many elderly residents are at a high risk of falling because of advanced age, muscle weakness and cognitive impairments. A comprehensive fall assessment should be made for each resident upon admission. If residents are at a high risk of falling, nursing home staff must take proper precautions and interventions to prevent the resident from falling. This includes helping residents into and out of bed, walking to the bathroom and taking care of themselves. Failure to provide needed ambulatory assistance is neglect.

Preventable Bedsores

Another avoidable injury that commonly plagues bed bound residents are bed sores or pressure ulcers. Bed sores usually form when nursing staff fail to rotate a bed bound resident. Bed sores may also be caused when a residents clothing or shoes rub against their skin. These injuries are often extremely painful and may require debridement surgery or amputation of a appendage or limb if not treated properly.
Nursing home abuse is the deliberate and intentional mistreatment of a nursing home resident. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse occurs more frequently than people may realize. Some common types of abuse include:

– treatment resulting in physical harm, pain or mental suffering
– financial abuse
– isolation from other residents
– sexual abuse

If you are worried that a relative is suffering from abuse or mistreatment you have the right to have the matter investigated.
