Posts tagged "Nursing Home Neglect"

Signs of a dangerous medication overdose

A neglectful, careless worker at a nursing home could give your loved one more medication than they actually need, or they could give them two medications that react dangerously with one another. Either way, this could lead to serious complications and could be fatal.

Dehydration and nursing home neglect

You know that nursing home neglect can often lead to dehydration. It's not intentional abuse -- at least, not all of the time. It's just the fundamental neglect of the person's basic needs. That could mean not bringing them food and water as often as they need it, even though they are dependent on the care of others.

Is the nursing home liable for my loved one's bedsore?

With modern bed technology, bedsores should be a thing of the past. Beds are now designed to reposition themselves and use hydraulics to change the weight distribution throughout the day for patients who are bed-ridden. That said, medical staff members need to program these beds to achieve such a desired result. Failing to properly program the bed could be the cause of your loved one's bedsore injuries.

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.
