Charleston Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer
Was your loved one neglected? Get the justice you deserve.
Nursing homes are supposed to be a place where your elderly loved ones
can get the level of day-to-day care that they need and deserve. Unfortunately,
this is not always the case. Research indicates that nearly 90% of all
nursing home facilities in the U.S. are understaffed, and that 1 out of
every 3 nursing homes has been cited for instances of abuse, neglect or
other related infractions.
This is more than a problem – it’s an epidemic.
Nursing home abuse and neglect is a very serious and often overlooked problem
in the United States. If you know or even suspect that your elderly loved
one has been mistreated in a nursing home, you shouldn't wait to take
action. Their life could be at risk. The
Charleston nursing home abuse attorneys at Preston & Salango, PLLC can fight to ensure that all
responsible parties are held accountable for their actions. We’ve already

Recognizing the Signs of Nursing Home Neglect
While the signs of physical or financial abuse can be easy to spot, it
can be much more difficult to tell whether or not your elderly loved one
is receiving the level of care that they deserve. One indication may be
that the nursing home is severely understaffed—which is, unfortunately,
not uncommon. Another sign may be that your loved one’s personal
hygiene has become unkempt or ignored, or that they seem emotionally withdrawn.
Some of the most common signs of nursing home neglect also include:
- Soiled clothes or stained bedding
- Unexplained or sudden weight loss
- Signs of malnutrition or dehydration
- Bedsores that have been left untreated
- Unexplained bruises or broken bones
- Sudden decrease in alertness
- Signs of over or under-medication
Your loved one may be fearful of speaking up about the abuse or neglect
that they have experienced in a nursing home or care facility, so it is
all the more important for you to look out for these warning signs. If
you notice that your loved one has untreated
pressure sores, for example, you shouldn’t ignore the problem. Even if your family
member is hesitant or simply unable to talk about their experiences, it
may still be wise to consult an attorney.
