Loved One Abused in a Nursing Home?
Speak to a Trusted Friendswood Injury Attorney
You expect the nursing home where you placed your family member or loved
one to maintain exceptional standards. You trusted that the facilities
would be well-maintained, clean and sanitary, and the medical staff to
be nothing but attentive and professional. Unfortunately, this is not
always the case for some individuals. If your family member is beginning
to show signs of abuse from the nursing staff, do not hesitate to get
legal counsel right away.
Call the Friendswood personal injury lawyers from The Soileau Law Firm, P.C. to investigate your case and assist with
making your abuse claim!
Recognizing the Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
Negligent staff members may be the first indication that something is amiss.
The staff may fail to feed, clean, or administer medications. They may
also neglect to change the patient's bedding or help rotate them if
they are immobile, leading to bed sores and infections. Patients may also
suffer if the staff is committing emotional or sexual abuse, and neglecting
their basic needs. These issues can impact your loved one's behavior,
so be sure to stay on the lookout for any signs.
Be cautious if you notice these signs or symptoms:
- Anxiety or depression
- Change in mood, personality, or behavior
- Unexplained injuries, e.g. bruises or broken bones
- Dirty bedding or unsanitary environment
Furthermore, if you see that the relationship between your loved one and
caregiver is tense, or that your loved one reacts with fear upon sight
of the caregiver, these are very telling signs that nursing home abuse
may be present. If this is the case, get in touch with our Friendswood
nursing home abuse attorneys as soon as possible to help bring the suffering
to an end!
