Assisting those Injured Due to Inadequate Care at Nursing Homes

Anyone living in a nursing home or another type of assisted living facility should expect that they will receive a high quality of care from the medical professionals and staff. Unfortunately, for various reasons, many nursing home residents do not receive the adequate care they need and deserve. According to research published by the National Center for Elder Abuse (NCEA),1 an estimated 95 percent of nursing home residents interviewed for a study reported that they had either witnessed nursing home neglect or suffered neglect themselves. Anyone who suffers injury due to nursing home neglect has the right to recover for their injuries from the nursing home. If you or a loved one has been a victim, call the St. Louis nursing home abuse lawyers at the personal injury office of The Bruning Law Firm to discuss a case today.

Signs of Nursing Home Neglect

If you have a loved one in a nursing home, you should always pay attention to any possible signs that they are suffering from neglect. Some common signs of neglect include the following:

  • Pressure sores or ulcers (known as bedsores)2
  • Fractures, contusions, or lacerations from falls
  • Sudden weight loss or other signs of malnutrition
  • Incorrect amount of medication in prescriptions
  • Illnesses that go undiagnosed or untreated
  • Frequent wandering outside the facility
  • Signs of restraint on limbs
  • Soiled clothing or bedding
  • Other unsanitary conditions.

If you notice any of the above signs or other injuries, you should always report a potential case of abuse. An experienced attorney can assist you with an investigation into possible neglect and advise you on how to report the problem and how to proceed.

Finally, if your loved one suffered injury that could have been prevented if they had received adequate care, a personal injury attorney can help you file a legal claim to recover for any financial losses incurred as a result of the injury, as well as pain and suffering and emotional trauma suffered by your loved one.
