Watch For Signs Of Nursing Home Abuse

You want your loved one to be safe and protected, and you trust nursing home staff to treat them well. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse can and does happen. Inform the staff if you notice unexplained:

  • Bruises
  • Bedsores
  • Injuries of any kind
  • Weight loss
  • Emotional changes
  • Emotional distance

If the problem persists or becomes worse, contact a personal injury lawyer about the situation.

Some injuries or incidents make abuse very apparent. Other times, it is not easy to prove. However, a skilled attorney can look for evidence and guide you through the legal process. Your loved one deserves to be compensated for the wrong done to them and for any treatment they may need.

Many abuse incidents go unreported. Do not be afraid to reach out for help if you suspect your loved one is not receiving proper treatment. An attorney can answer your questions and help you determine what steps to take next.
