nursing home neglect Archives

Home health-care services may not be the best solution

When people age, it's likely that they will require some kind of care. The type of care they receive may vary, but many prefer to stay at home. Home care is a popular option because it keeps them in familiar surroundings. This is particularly helpful for those with memory loss and dementia.

Protect your loved one from psychological abuse in nursing care

Nursing home neglect comes in many forms. One that is often overlooked is the psychological abuse that individuals may face. Psychological abuse can range from ignoring residents to degrading them. Psychological abuse could include threats or humiliation.

The secrets nursing homes hide from potential residents

Not all nursing homes are the kind, loving and watchful facilities you hope they are. Many make mistakes and hire staff members who don't have your loved ones' best interests at heart. Sometimes, there are secrets that nursing homes don't want you to know.

Nurses and aide face murder charges for patient death

Nursing home abuse is one of the most terrible things to hear about. You put your loved ones a nursing home to make sure they get the care they need. Finding out that nurses mocked them or allowed them to go without assistance is devastating.

Nurses face charges after elderly patient leaves facility alone

When you leave your loved one in a nursing home, you expect the facility to do its best to provide for him or her. In the case that you have a loved one with Alzheimer's disease or dementia, you know how important it is for nurses and the staff to do their rounds. If your loved one wanders off, he or she may have no idea how to get back home.

What can you do if you think your loved one is a victim of abuse?

The last thing any child wants to find out is that his or her mother or father has been abused in a nursing home. You choose the facility you do because you trust the people there. You believe they'll treat your loved ones like family. That, sadly, isn't always the way things work out.

What can you do to reduce dehydration in nursing homes?

Nursing home patients are some of the most vulnerable patients that are seen by medical staff members. Some have no ability to care for themselves, while others are frail or struggling with their health. It's up to the nursing home staff to make sure these individuals get the care and support they need. If they don't, then the patients are at a serious risk of death or injury.

Nursing home patients increasingly at risk of poor treatment

In what is probably not something you want to read, the facts show that nursing home residents are being exposed to more errors and maltreatment in nursing homes today than ever before. The inspector general for the federal Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) stated that urgent action needs to be taken, because there is a growing problem in American nursing homes.

Bedsores: A sign of trouble in your loved one's nursing home

Bedsores, also known as pressure sores, are caused when tissues rub against bone. They occur because the pressure of the tissue rubbing on the bone is not relieved over an extended period of time. This continuous friction causes a sore, which can become infected.
