Nursing Home Malpractice

Sadly, the elderly are easy targets for abuse or neglect because they are so often helpless. According to the National Center on Elder Abuse, as many as 10 percent of elders in nursing home care may experience some sort of abuse. These numbers, however, are extremely underreported. If an elderly family member is showing unusual signs of poor health in a nursing home, be vigilant.

It is important that you reach out to a legal advocate if a loved one has experienced such symptoms as:

  • Rapid weight loss
  • Sudden agitation or emotional withdrawal
  • Bedsores
  • Pressure sores
  • Decubitus ulcers
  • Falls
  • Unexplained bruises or other injuries
