What are the warning signs of bad nursing home care?

If your loved one is receiving care in a nursing home or similar facility, it's important that you keep an eye on his or her well-being.

There are many warning signs of bad nursing home care, including but not limited to the following:

  • Physical or emotional changes, such as if the person has lost some type of function or is no longer interested in taking part in activities.
  • Bruises or scrapes. While not always the case, this could be a sign of a fall or a staff member who is being overly aggressive.
  • Unanswered questions. Is your loved one avoiding questions? If so, there's always a chance he or she is doing so because they don't want to bring a problem to light.
  • If your loved one is telling you they don't want a particular person to care for them. If this happens, dig around to find out exactly why they feel this way.
  • Dehydration. It's important for nursing home patients to stay hydrated. If symptoms of dehydration set in, you need to learn more about the cause.

These are just a few of the many potential warning signs of bad nursing home care.

If you have any reason to believe that a loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse, you need to move the person to another facility. From there, it's time to focus on your legal rights. There are steps you can take to bring action against the negligent facility, which could result in your loved one receiving compensation for any injuries and other damages.
