What To Do If You Suspect Nursing Home Abuse in Louisville, Kentucky
One of the first things you need to do if you suspect that a loved one is a victim of abuse in a nursing home is to gather substantial evidence to support a claim.
You may have been noticing signs of:
- unexplained injuries;
- changes in behavior; and
- poor hygiene regimens but merely noticing isn't enough.
If you have questions about what information to gather to document and present these conditions, your attorney can guide you through this difficult process.
When you notice these signs, you should ask the patient about the situation but you should be prepared for if he or she may not want to discuss it. This is often because of fear of what could happen if they admit to abuse (because the situation could worsen). If this is the case, your attorney may recommend moving your loved one to another residence.
Contacting a Kentucky nursing home attorney is the first step you can take to address potential nursing home abuse. An attorney knows what evidence to seek, and can take action on behalf of your loved one, you can focus your energy on those that matter most to you at this difficult time.
