How to Identify Nursing Home Abuse
Abuse can occur in a senior care facility for several months or years before the victim speaks up or the family recognizes what is going on. Even residents may not be aware when someone is abusing them unless the abuse is physical or sexual in nature. In addition, they may feel too embarrassed or intimidated to report abusive behavior.
Warning signs of nursing home abuse may include:
- Changes in medication type or dosage
- Suspicious activity with finances, bank account, or estates/wills
- Complaints or cries for help from the victim
- Symptoms of malnutrition or dehydration
- Symptoms of clinical depression or anxiety disorder
- Allegations from other residents or staff
If you identify nursing home abuse, contact our law firm today. We can look into your claim to determine what occurred and who is at fault.
