https://www.grayandwhitelaw.com/ Does your aging loved one appear to have stiff hands and feet? It is possible that their muscles are shortening and stiffening, which is a sign of contractures. If your loved one is under the care of a nursing home in Kentucky, it is possible that nursing home abuse or neglect has occurred which has caused contractures. Find out more about contractures here in this video.

When contractures occur, it affects an elderly person’s ability to move, walk, and function normally. Sadly, contractures can cause limitations while eating and doing other things that require joint movement. When seniors are under the care of nursing homes, they should receive proper attention and treatment. This means that the nursing home staff should be helping their residents prevent health complications. However, many nursing homes are negligent in preventing contractures—even though all it takes is regular movement, repositioning, the use of splinting devices, and exercise.

Sadly, contractures are difficult to reverse and lead to diminished mobility. If the nursing home failed to give your loved one adequate care, you may have a claim for nursing home neglect and abuse.
