Types of Nursing Home Negligence and Assisted Living Negligence

Nursing home negligence and abuse can manifest in various ways. Injuries and deaths are often sustained due to the following:

  • Nursing home falls
  • Bed sores
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual assault
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Medication errors

Look for Signs of Nursing Home Neglect

It may be difficult for your loved one to communicate what is happening. He or she may feel threatened by nursing home staff. He or she may not even understand what is happening to him or her. You can look for signs of nursing home malpractice, which can include:

  • Unsanitary living conditions
  • Weight loss
  • Bruises
  • Lacerations
  • Behavioral changes

You know your loved one better than anyone else, so pay attention to changes that are occurring. If you suspect he or she is being neglected or abused, seek legal help.
