Common Signs Of Nursing Home Negligence

Nursing home negligence and abuse are sad realities for some family members. If you notice that a family member in a nursing home shows signs of negligence or abuse, you should contact a legal professional for advocacy as soon as possible.

Some of the most common issues that can indicate abuse or negligence are:

  • Broken bones
  • Dehydration
  • Brain bleeds
  • Fractures
  • Black eyes
  • Bruises
  • Bedsores
  • Lacerations or cuts
  • Extreme weight loss or weight gain

Nursing home negligence and abuse isn’t something that you and your family members should tolerate. Abuse isn’t always physical; some cases of nursing home abuse have involved emotional abuse, such as bullying or even threats of violence. If you notice any unusual changes in behavior, talk to your family member about it, and consider launching an investigation into the nursing home.
