It’s never an easy decision to move a loved one into a nursing home or long term care facility. In most cases, it becomes necessary when our loved one’s care needs outstrip our ability to provide care, or when it becomes clear that our loved one can no longer live safely on their own. In turning over their care to a facility, we trust that the facility will treat our loved one with respect and dignity, and provide the care they need. However, sometimes, nursing homes fail to provide our loved ones with the care they need, resulting in serious injuries.
Nursing home negligence can come in many forms. Signs and symptoms may include:
- Injuries and broken bones
- Bed sores
- Physical or sexual abuse
- Unsanitary conditions
- Rapid weight loss or gain
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Failure to follow doctors orders or provide prescription medication
- Sudden behaviour changes
