Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect
Placing a loved one in a nursing home is often a difficult decision to make. Once made, people take great care to choose a facility and staff that they believe will offer the level of care their loved ones need. Unfortunately, abuse and neglect of our senior loved ones can happen in even the best facilities.
Some of the common risks that seniors face in nursing homes include:
These issues can be incredibly serious, even fatal. A bedsore may sound minor, but it can result in infections such as septicemia that can threaten the life of a senior loved one.
Another issue that often confronts the relatives of those in nursing homes is missing records. There may be a failure to preserve records of the care that your loved one received.
