Negligence and Nursing Homes

When a nursing home does not meet the standard of care that is required under the law, resulting in harm to residents, the facility may be held liable for it. Whether the act was intentional or rooted in neglect, you can take legal action and pursue compensation for your loved one’s suffering.

What Are the Causes of Nursing Home Neglect?

One of the most common causes of nursing home neglect is inadequate staffing. When nursing homes do not have enough staff to care for residents, employees become overworked, stressed, and may not be capable of providing the kind of care necessary to keep residents healthy, safe, and happy. Other causes of nursing home neglect include improper training and lack of background checks.

Below is a list of common types of nursing home neglect:

  • Medical neglect, including failure to administer necessary medications, improper care, and not reporting signs of illness or infections to doctors or nurses.
  • Social or emotional neglect, including isolation, failure to provide devices that make mobility possible for residents, and forgetting to move residents with extreme mental or mobility issues.
  • Improper hygiene and basic care, such as not regularly bathing or changing the resident’s clothes.

Here are some signs that may indicate your elderly loved one is being neglected:

  • Dehydration
  • Bedsores
  • Malnutrition
  • Personal hygiene problems
  • Untreated medical conditions
  • Insomnia
