Do you visit your elder loved one in his or her nursing home? If so, do you know what to look for and what signs may be red flags? Unfortunately, Kentucky nursing homes are often places of abuse and neglect. Learn about nursing home abuse and neglect signs here in this video from a Louisville elder abuse lawyer.
Sometimes nursing home neglect can be difficult to detect, but it can be just as harmful as nursing home abuse. In order to determine if your loved one is a victim of nursing home neglect in Kentucky, check your loved one’s bedding and clothes for cleanliness. Also, pay attention to the level of care he or she is receiving. Is anyone helping your elder loved one eat or drink? Or, is the staff turning your loved one regularly? Elderly patients should not stay in the same positions for long periods of time without being moved.
There are many warning signs of neglect. If your elderly loved one is suffering from bedsores, depression or malnutrition, take action against the negligent nursing home.
