Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers in Brandon
Common Signs of Abuse
It is very unfortunate that nursing home abuse is as widespread as it is.
This type of abuse comes in many forms. Negligence, physical and sexual
assault, verbal abuse and even financial misconduct are all too common
in many facilities that are supposed to care for our loved ones. Abuse
of this nature is extremely harmful both physically and mentally. Many
of the residents of nursing homes are vulnerable so it is vital that you
monitor their care closely.
Common signs of abuse include a drastic change in emotional state, anxiety,
agitation and a lack of communication. Physical signs of abuse include
bruising, bed sores, broken bones, malnutrition, dehydration and unsanitary
conditions. Improper distribution of medicine is a form of
medical malpractice that is also common. Lack of assistance given to residents in their daily
activities and failure to protect them from harm is a form of negligence.
Unnecessary confinement and physical or chemical restraints are other
forms of abuse. If you suspect that your loved one is being abused in
a nursing home or they complain of abuse, an experienced nursing home
abuse attorney in Brandon should be contacted immediately.
