When Injuries from Kentucky Nursing Home Neglect Lead to Complications

It can be devastating to learn that your loved one has suffered serious injuries as a result of abuse or neglect in their Kentucky nursing home. The potential complications of your loved one's injuries will depend on the extent of the injury and it's important to know what to expect.

Bedsores, which result when a resident stays in one position too long, can not only lead to open wounds or infection but frozen joints as well.

If a resident suffers a fall, that may lead to a fracture or multiple fractures. This can be even more serious if the resident already had weakened bones from medical conditions such as osteoarthritis.

Starvation can be a deadly consequence if a resident suffers from malnutrition. And if the resident is the victim of a medication error, they may suffer from the effects of an overdose, which could include organ failure or other serious consequences.

The vulnerability of nursing home residents puts them at serious risk of psychological damage from depression and isolation, as well.

The consequences of your loved one's injuries could lead to pain, extensive treatment and a hard road to recovery. If this is the case, it may help to know that if negligence has resulted in your loved one's injuries, you may be eligible to file a Kentucky nursing home claim on their behalf.

If your loved one has sustained a serious nursing home injury you should immediately consult with a Louisville nursing home abuse attorney. An attorney will guide you in the process of filing your Kentucky nursing home claim.
