It is tough to admit, but nursing home neglect is a major problem in our country. When we lack the time and ability to adequately care for our seniors, we like to trust that our care facility of choice will do everything in their power to provide the best care. Sadly enough, many seniors are mistreated and neglected. Although, it can be a difficult problem to spot if you don’t know what to look for. If your loved one appears malnourished, has bedsores, sustains injuries that no one can explain, or is constantly in an unsanitary condition, they could be the victim of neglect.
Types of Neglect
There are several forms of neglect, though. Cases have arisen where nursing home patients were not given their medicine, completely ignored or left alone, or did not have their basic human needs met and were malnourished due to a lack of food and water. All types of neglect are inexcusable. If you think your loved one is being neglected in a nursing home, speak with Mary Ann Covone to put an end to neglect. She has over 23 years of experience with medical malpractice and neglect cases and can help protect your family. Don’t allow your loved ones to suffer through abuse.
