Is Your Loved One Malnourished?

Nursing home staff are responsible for providing residents with nutritious meals and regular checkups to ensure that residents are healthy. Some residents may also need additional care in the form of nutritional supplements or a special diet. When nursing care staff fail to monitor the health of your loved ones or take steps to prevent malnutrition, you may be able to hold them liable.
