Putting your loved one in a nursing home is always a difficult and emotional decision. Before you entrusted them to the care of a nursing home, you probably spent a great deal of time researching nursing homes to find one you could trust. When you discover that your loved one has not been cared for properly, or may have been abused, the sense of betrayal can be overwhelming. For nearly 50 years, nursing home neglect lawyers at Bye, Goff & Rohde have been helping get justice for loved ones abused or neglected while in nursing homes.
Signs There Is a Problem
It can be hard to believe that abuse or neglect is taking place. Our aging loved ones may not always be able to tell us what is happening. You may not immediately recognize the signs that your loved one is being treated improperly.
Some common indications that your loved one is being abused or neglected include:
- Falls. As we age, falling becomes a greater risk. Nursing homes should assess a patient’s risk of falling and take steps to ensure their safety. If your loved one is frequently falling or has had a severe fall, neglect could be the cause.
- Bedsores. A bedridden patient requires special care to ensure they are frequently re-positioned. Bedsores may indicate they are not receiving the proper care.
- Bruises. Elderly patients often bruise easily due to their age or as a side effect of common medications. However, if your loved one is frequently bruised or has an unusual number of bruises, they may be the victims of abuse or neglect.
Once you recognize signs of possible abuse and neglect, it is important that you consult with one of our personal injury attorneys as soon as possible. We have the experience to help you navigate through the process of discovering exactly what has happened, getting your loved ones the proper treatment, and ensuring they are safe in the future.
