Recognizing the Signs of Abuse
Our firm has managed a great number of nursing home abuse cases throughout
our years of service. We have a deep understanding on how the homes work,
the telltale signs of abuse, and also how to litigate should the facility
need to be taken to court.
If you suspect abuse or neglect, keep an eye out for these signs:
- Unexplained injuries (bruising, broke bones, sprains, scars)
- Refusing to take medication
- Malnutrition or dehydration
- Unclean room or bed sheets
- Caregiver or nurse does not allow to be alone with your loved one
- Marks on your relative's arms or legs (possibly indicating he or she
- Your relative's overall mood is significantly changed
If you find that your loved one is behaving differently or you can visibly
see that they are constantly disturbed or upset, then you need to be on
your guard. This can also be a sign of emotional abuse, which is just
as damaging as physical abuse and neglect. Contact a Charleston nursing
home attorney immediately after noticing these signs. The sooner you contact
us, the sooner we can put an end to your loved one's misery.
