Common Signs of Elderly Abuse or Neglect
There are many different ways that nursing home staff can abuse or neglect the residents. As your loved one gets older and is able to do less for themselves, they become more vulnerable. This puts them in a position where they can be taken advantage of, are less able to stand up for themselves, and can be neglected by the staff who are expected to care for them.
A few common signs that nursing home negligence or abuse is taking place include:
- Your loved one has experienced significant mood changes
- Dehydration, malnutrition, or inadequate meals
- Bedsores or ulcers
- Unexplained broken bones or falls
- Medication mistakes
