Answer

If you have a loved one in a nursing home, it’s important to know what to look for to make sure that they are taken care of well. You should keep a close eye on anything that seems unusual or unexplainable, such as:

  • Unusual bruises
  • Weight loss
  • Bedsores
  • Broken bones
  • Sprains
  • Change in financial habits
  • An unexpected death

These can all be signs of abuse, whether physical, emotional, financial or even sexual. It’s important to visit your loved one regularly and know what’s normal, so you can see quickly when something changes. 

What to do if you notice warning signs 

Should you notice a warning sign, you should speak with the staff at the nursing home. If they cannot provide a satisfactory explanation, you should consider reaching out to an attorney. There are many ways to get answers: nursing home care records, security video footage and more. 

Elderly individuals can be taken advantage of by a lot of different people: staff, other residents, family members and more. There is more risk to be had by underreacting than overreacting. Nursing home abuse is a serious issue. If you think your loved one is being abused contact a lawyer today.
