Signs of Nursing Home Abuse, Neglect and Negligence

 
Obviously, physical abuse of a nursing home resident would be manifested by cuts, bruises, scrapes or other visible injuries to the person. The resident may tell you that he or she has been slapped, shaken, punched or otherwise mistreated. Physical neglect may be evident in the absence of staff attention to the resident's personal hygiene. The failure of staff to provide for the resident's necessities of daily living can be another sign of neglect. Occasionally, changes in the resident's mood or personality may be as a result of emotional upset or abuse. Other obvious warning signs include unexplained and rapid weight loss, broken bones (especially broken hips as a consequence of falls) and health problems of any sort which were previously unreported to the resident's family by the facility staff.

If you suspect that your loved one has been the victim of nursing home negligence call attorney Michael J. Perillo, Jr. at (847) 732-5986 for a free consultation.
