What are some signs of nursing home abuse?
Nursing home abuse can manifest in many ways, including:
- Bruises that cannot be explained
- Resident’s fear of nursing home staff
- Unwillingness of staff to leave family/friends alone with the resident
- Unwillingness of staff to allow any visitation
- Inexplicable changes in behavior
Nursing home neglect can lead to:
- Infection and sepsis
- Social isolation
What should I do if I suspect nursing home abuse or neglect of my family member?
Your first step is to discuss your concerns with the nursing home management. Document their answers. You should also consult with an attorney who can inform you about what to look for in such cases and how to further document any signs of abuse or neglect. This can include photos of your loved one and his or her surroundings in the facility. When you believe wrongful behavior has occurred, bring in an attorney to help you pursue strategic remedies.
What damages are available in a nursing home lawsuit?
The damages that are available include both economic as well as non-economic damages. Economic damages will include any medical expenses that were required to address physical harm done to the resident. Non-economic damages would include pain and suffering and the emotional distress caused by the abuse or neglect. If your loved one died due to abuse or neglect, you may be entitled to wrongful death damages.
