What are the warning signs of nursing home neglect?

Doctors and caregivers who fail to provide expected levels of care and service can end up causing serious and sometimes fatal injury to their patients.

Neglect can manifest itself in a variety of ways, so be aware of these warning signs:

  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Bedsores
  • Changes in personal hygiene
  • Unusual changes in behavior
  • A growing lack of friendly interaction with staff
  • Environmental hazard in the patient’s room, such as unsafe furniture or mobility equipment, poor lighting, slippery floors, etc.

Victims of neglect are highly vulnerable to serious injuries, infections, and diseases. Reporting nursing home abuse and neglect on behalf of a loved one could mean the difference between life and death for a patient and others who may be suffering as well.
