If you have a family member living in a nursing home, it may be difficult to determine whether they are being abused. A lot of the times, the elderly are afraid to speak up because they are scared that they will be abused further. Other times, they don’t feel like getting the help is necessary. Sadly some of the elderly think that they have to put up with the abuse because they assume that if they speak up, they won’t receive any assistance.
It’s important to be familiar with the types of neglect that occur in nursing homes. The following is a list of warning signs of abuse provided by the Nursing Home Abuse Guide:
- Sudden weight loss
- Bed sores
- Injuries from falls such as fractures
- Malnutrition including dehydration
- Withdrawn elderly behavior
- Poor hygiene
- Environmental hazards
In order to protect nursing home residents the Nursing Home Reform Act was established. Among the standards provided by the act is the Residents’ Bill of Rights to residents of Nursing Homes. The Nursing Home Abuse Guide lists the Residents’ Bill of Rights as follows:
- The right to privacy
- Accommodation of all needs
- Communicate freely
- To be treated with dignity
- To be free of mistreatment, abuse, or neglect
- To exercise self-determination
- Voice grievances without facing reprisal
- To be free from physical restraints
- Participate in family and resident groups
- Participate in their own care such as notice of changes in treatment
Nursing home negligence cases are time-sensitive so it is very important to seek representation from a nursing home abuse attorney immediately.
