Have you noticed unexplained bruises on your loved one in a nursing home? They may be a victim of abuse or neglect, even if they have not said anything and you have no concrete proof or evidence of wrongdoing.

What to Do If You Notice Bruises
A bruise might not seem like a big deal, particularly on an elderly person (as their skin tends to bruise more easily than most). But if you are consistently seeing bruises on your loved one in a nursing home, and there is no good explanation for why they are there, you should consider the possibility that your loved one is not being treated properly. Even if your loved one is not being violently abused, their caregivers could be mishandling them or handling them too roughly. Similarly, your loved one may not be getting the nutrition or medication they need to stay healthy.
Rather than keeping your suspicions to yourself, speak up, even if you lack evidence or certainty. Our team will investigate on your behalf and let you know what we find. If abuse or neglect is a possibility, we will pursue it and hold those who are mistreating your loved one accountable. Call 1-800-747-3733 to learn more about how the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can help you.
