Nursing Home Neglect

Nursing Home Neglect Attorneys

When you entrust an elderly loved one to a nursing home, you have the right to expect that your family member will be cared for with respect and dignity. The last thing you expect for him or her is to come to harm. Unfortunately, nursing home neglect and abuse are all too common. If you believe your elderly family member has been hurt while in the care of a nursing home, the attorneys at Marsh & Mittas are here to help.

Spotting The Signs Of Nursing Home Mistreatment And Elder Abuse

Nursing home neglect and abuse are not always obvious. Your elderly loved one may not be able to explain what has happened. The nursing home staff may provide explanations that simply do not match up. Trust your instinct. If it feels like something is wrong, contact one of our nursing home neglect attorneys in the Akron, Canton and New Philadelphia areas.

Signs of mistreatment in a nursing home may include decubitus ulcers, also known as bedsores, which may be the result of your loved one not being moved sufficiently. Illness may be the result of failure to provide medication or failure to provide food. Dehydration and malnutrition can lead to a weakened immune system. If your loved one seems suddenly withdrawn, it could be a sign of emotional abuse.

The nursing home should be able to provide explanations for most bruises or broken bones. If not, the injuries could have been suffered because your loved one was not being properly monitored. This is considered nursing home neglect.
