  • Common Signs of Abuse in Nursing Homes

    For many families, signs of abuse and neglect can be hard to spot. Even if you visit regularly, the staff may be on their best behavior when the family is present. If something feels off, or if your loved one has a drastic change in temperament, they may be a victim of abuse or neglect.

    Other signs of nursing home abuse or neglect include:

    • Unexplainable cuts, bruises, or other injuries.
    • Odd explanations for injuries
    • Bedsores
    • Weight loss with no medical explanation
    • Dehydration with no medical explanation
    • Depression or mood swings
    • Loss of interest in hobbies
    • Agitation, particularly when a certain staff member is close
    • Loss of medical devices or assistive devices, such as a walker, glasses, or hearing aid
    • Unplugged or missing telephone in their room
    • Missing valuables
    • Missing mail

    When you suspect your loved one is suffering abuse or neglect in their nursing facility, your first step should be to ensure their immediate safety. Then, contact a Bradenton nursing home abuse attorney at Morgan & Morgan to explore your legal options.

  • A Look at the Common Types of Nursing Home Abuse

    Abuse in nursing homes can be either emotional, physical, or both. However, emotional abuse is often the most common form of abuse that elderly patients see at a nursing home. Workers will sometimes belittle the residents when they don’t eat or when they make a mess in a diaper or their bed. When this happens, it’s common for the residents to not want to speak to those who come to visit them, even if it’s family.

    Some signs of physical abuse can be harder to spot but can include nurses and aides striking a resident with anything from a brush to a belt or even using a hand or fist. You might see bruising on their hands or legs. That can be a sign of such abuse and should be taken straight to the authorities. Other types of physical negligence may include things like falls that are not taken care of or helped properly, which could easily lead to a fractures or infections from improper care.

    You can report abuse to the Bradenton Sherrif’s Department or the Florida Agency for Health. You may also want to transfer your loved one to another nursing home.
