Recognizing the Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Negligent staff members may be the first indication that something is amiss. The staff may fail to feed, clean, or administer medications. They may also neglect to change the patient's bedding or help rotate them if they are immobile, leading to bedsores and infections. Patients may also suffer if the staff is committing emotional or sexual abuse, and neglecting their basic needs. These issues can impact your loved one's behavior, so be sure to stay on the lookout for any signs.

Be cautious if you notice these signs or symptoms:

  • Fear
  • Malnutrition
  • Withdrawal
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Change in mood, personality, or behavior
  • Unexplained injuries, e.g. bruises or broken bones
  • Dirty bedding or unsanitary environment

Furthermore, if you see that the relationship between your loved one and caregiver is tense, or that your loved one reacts with fear upon sight of the caregiver, these are very telling signs that nursing home abuse may be present. If this is the case, get in touch with our Friendswood nursing home abuse attorneys as soon as possible to help bring the suffering to an end!
