Our Experienced Nursing Home Neglect Attorneys Will Fight for You.

4 Basic Types of Nursing Home Neglect

Because nursing home neglect is both frequent and difficult to prove, it’s vital that as a family member you familiarize yourself with the types and warning signs of neglect.

  1. Medical Neglect

    When the nursing home fails to adequately treat or prevent the patient’s medical concerns, including provisional care for diabetes, bed sores, infections, cognitive disorders, mobility issues, and lacerations

  2. Neglect of Basic Needs

    Occurs when the facility fails to provide the patient with a reasonable amount of food and water or a safe and clean environment

  3. Neglect of Personal Hygiene

    The nursing home is responsible for providing adequate assistance to residents for their hygiene needs, including bathing, brushing their teeth, laundry, cleaning, and other hygiene-related activities.

  4. Social or Emotional Neglect

    Most often occurs when the nursing home staff yells at, ignores, or causes the patient to be isolated from interaction with others

Nursing Home Neglect
Frequently Asked Questions

Experts identify four primary types of nursing home abuse: physical, sexual, emotional, and financial. Victims may display physical injuries or behavioral changes. Physical or sexual abuse can result in bruises, cuts, or welts and damage to personal belongings. Psychological trauma can also arise from physical or emotional abuse, causing agitation or withdrawal. Sudden changes in financial accounts may indicate coercion or fraud. Neglect can be identified through poor hygiene, nutrition, and untreated illness or injury.

 

Contact the Deuterman Law Group immediately. We’ll help report the issue to the proper authorities, such as the county Adult Protective Services office. And we’ll gather information to assist in the investigation and prepare a claim against the owners and operators of the nursing home.

An attorney will protect your loved one’s rights and represent their best interests in cases of suspected nursing home abuse or neglect. They can conduct a thorough investigation, resulting in immediate changes. If you haven’t filed a complaint, we can coordinate with the state Division of Health Services Regulation to ensure an investigation. If needed, we will also assess potential compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and relocation. An attorney can help appoint a family member as a guardian and file a legal complaint against the nursing home.
