Naples Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Caring for Your Parents or Other Elderly Relatives
If you have a parent, grandparent or other elderly loved one in a nursing home or other care facility for the elderly, make sure you are staying alert for some of the signs of possible abuse:
- Bedsores/decubitus ulcers
- Broken bones and fractures
- Malnutrition and sudden weight loss
- Confusion or incoherence
If you see one of these signs, it does not automatically mean that abuse or neglect is taking place. An exception is bedsores, which should never happen if proper care is taken to move an immobile patient at regular intervals. The important thing is that if you recognize some signs and have concerns that abuse is taking place, contact an attorney as soon as possible.
