When Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Occurs
Proper and adequate care in nursing homes is not limited to the visible care provided, like delivering food to rooms and responding to requests for help. Staff members must be vigilant in following doctors’ orders and in monitoring care needs.
- For example:
- Is your loved one suffering from malnutrition? Staff members are responsible for monitoring food intake and monitoring nutrition needs for diabetics and other with special needs.
- Was your loved one injured off of the premises? Facility staff is responsible for supervising building entrances.
- Did your loved one fall? Staff may be responsible for assessing each resident’s needs and providing walking supervision or assistance to avoid falls.
- Does your loved one have bed sores, pressure stores of skin ulcers? Nursing home staff members are responsible for being attentive to hygiene and daily care.
