How to spot nursing home abuse

If you have a loved one in a nursing home in Pennsylvania, you may be worried about his or her care. While most nursing homes offer exceptional care to their residents, at Friedman, Schuman, Applebaum and Nemeroff PC, we know there are some that are neglectful. To keep your loved one safe, it helps to learn how to spot nursing home abuse.

US New & World Report lists some top signs to watch for that your loved one may be abused or neglected. While you should always follow up on any gut feeling that something is wrong, you should also keep an eye on the nursing home's staff and overall management. This can be a good indicator of the level of care.

If you find it difficult to get answers to your questions or get in contact with anyone in administration, this could be a warning sign. An inattentive staff or a staff who is unorganized is more likely to neglect your loved one or abuse him or her. You should look for quick answers and attentiveness to needs. Your concerns should be addressed as soon as you bring them up.

Also, watch for signs from your loved one. If he or she is acting different or looks unhealthy, it is a red flag. This is especially true if changes have no other explanation. A sudden change in mood could indicate a medical issue, but if there is not one, then neglect or abuse could be to blame. To find out more about medical malpractice, visit our website.
