Sometimes, You Need To Defend Those You Love

Nursing Home Negligence

Were You Or A Loved One The Victim Of Nursing Home Negligence?

What Is Nursing Home Negligence

In communities throughout the Rio Grande Valley, family has always been a priority. We do all we can to take care of our loved ones. As they age, their increasing need for competent medical care increases. This often results in the difficult decision of placing older loved ones in a nursing home.

Entrusting your loved one to a nursing home means placing your full confidence in the staff to provide sufficient care in your absence. Tragically, nursing home negligence is an all too frequent occurrence. Your loved one deserves to be treated with dignity and afforded the best care available. When your loved one suffers from neglect in a nursing home, the McAllen attorneys at the Moore Law Firm can help you and loved one potentially recover the damages.

Common Indications Of Nursing Home Neglect

When you visit your loved one in a nursing home, you should check for common indications of nursing home neglect. These signs include:

  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Infections
  • Bedsores
  • Dehydration
  • Undernourishment
  • Incorrectly administered medications

The most effective way to guard against nursing home neglect is to visit your loved one frequently. In this way, you can easily spot signs of neglect and take action before your loved one suffers serious or even fatal injuries.

The Impact Of Nursing Home Neglect

When neglect has taken place, often the emotional damage is as injurious as the physical. Many people who have suffered abuse in nursing homes will face a lifetime of crippling emotional damages, including depression, anxiety, and even the adoption of strange and compulsive behavior. Physical injuries may heal quickly, but your loved one will likely suffer for years from this type of neglect.

Staff at nursing homes, the companies that own them, and the insurance companies that represent them may offer you a minor settlement when you notice neglect. These settlements may cover the cost of moving your loved one, but never take into account the emotional suffering they have endured.
