Make regular visits and keep a lookout for signs of Kentucky nursing home abuse or Kentucky nursing home neglect. If you have reason to believe that your loved one is being mistreated, contact a Louisville nursing home abuse attorney.
Signs of Kentucky Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Looking out for early warning signs can help you protect your loved one before a seriously dangerous situation occurs. It is important to note that a lot of the responsibility for addressing the abuse lay on you because patients can be hesitant to talk about abuse or neglect out of fear that things will get worse.
Signs of Kentucky nursing home abuse and neglect:
- unexplained bruises, cuts or other injuries (whether from intentional abuse or lack of supervision);
- unexplained changes in behavior,
- staff's refusal to let you see a patient,
- patient kept in an over-medicated condition and
- unexplained changes/losses in possessions or finances.
If you believe your loved one is being mistreated, whether in the form of Kentucky nursing home abuse or Kentucky nursing home neglect, contact a Louisville nursing home abuse attorney to discuss the legal action you may be able to take.
