What Is Nursing Home Neglect?

Act Now if Your Loved One Was Injured Due to Nursing Home Neglect

Nursing home neglect occurs when a nursing home breaches their duty by providing care that is below the normal standard and results in harm to the patient. This is different from nursing home abuse, which involves specific, targeted harm towards the patient. In nursing home neglect, this usually involves a failure to act or failure to maintain a reasonable level of care.

If you believe that your loved one is being neglected by nursing home staff, call Schroeter Goldmark & Bender and speak with our Washington nursing home neglect attorneys.

Know the Signs of Neglect in Nursing Homes

Many of our loved ones are not able to properly communicate whether or not they are being neglected. In many cases, nursing home neglect goes undetected, which can lead to devastating consequences. This is why it is so important to be vigilant and pay attention to signs of whether or not neglect is affecting their lives.

Signs that your loved one may be being neglected in a nursing home:

  • Bed sores
  • Malnutrition
  • Poor hygiene
  • Fecal or odor stains
  • Unsanitary living environment
  • Social withdrawal or isolation
  • Sudden and unexplained weight loss
  • Poor maintenance of nursing home facilities such as lack of lighting and hazards
