Evidence of Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

It is always an emotional decision to trust the well-being of an elderly or disabled family member to the care of others. While many of these facilities provide excellent and nurturing care for their residents, it only takes one staff member's actions to create a stressful and unhealthy environment for our most vulnerable loved ones. Signs of neglect and abuse can be difficult to spot for visiting family members, but once they are, action should be taken immediately.

Common indications of nursing home neglect and abuse include:

  • Decline in hygiene
  • Sudden weight loss (or other signs of malnutrition)
  • Dramatic changes in mood or personality
  • Misplaced or broken personal items
  • General lack of cleanliness in the resident room and facility
  • Unexplained bruising or other minor injuries
  • Bedsores (or "pressure ulcers")

If you have seen some of these signs with your loved one at their nursing home, then the time to act may be now. Our Long Island firm can help you arrange for alternate housing and care for your family member and begin to collect the appropriate evidence needed to launch a civil suit that truly speaks the gravity of this mistreatment.

Nursing Home Neglect vs. Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse is almost always active aggression, willful exploitation, or other deliberate action taken in order to harm residents. Nursing home neglect is a form of abuse. It is more passive in nature and doesn’t necessarily always involve the level of sinister intent present in cases of physical, sexual, or verbal abuse. However, the consequences are just as devastating.

Nursing home neglect stems from a failure to provide appropriate, reasonable, and attentive care, whether by an individual caregiver or by nursing home administrative staff. Regardless of whether it stems from caregiver negligence, understaffing, or anything else, neglect can result in bacterial infections, exacerbated health problems, delayed medical, avoidable death, and other harmful, deadly problems.

As soon as you see the signs of nursing home neglect, contact our firm right away and take the first steps toward justice for your loved one.
