Accountability and Prevention

Posted By:

Attorney Russell W. Lewis, IV, is dedicated to nursing home reform.  Nursing home abuse and neglect is becoming all too common.  Medical and corporate negligence can lead to injuries and death and is unacceptable.  Nationwide, the number of nursing home abuse and neglect cases is increasing. 

COMMON WARNING SIGNS OF ABUSE OR NEGLECT:

  • Bedsores (also called “pressure sores”)
  • Cuts, open wounds, or frequent bruising
  • Personal items torn or broken
  • Bruises that suggest physical restraints were used
  • Sudden, severe weight loss
  • Dehydration
  • Infections
  • Malnutrition
  • Jaundice or an abnormally pale complexion
  • Poor personal hygiene or strong fecal/urine odors
  • Fleas, lice, scabies, rodents, or other pests or parasites in the room
  • Other unattended health problems

If any nursing home resident exhibits any of these warnings signs, do not assume that the situation will resolve itself.  Protect your loved one and help protect the loved ones of others.  You may have a claim needing the help of an experienced nursing home abuse and neglect attorney.  We encourage you to contact our office as soon as possible so we may begin the review process.  Lawyers cannot change what happened, but together we can work to ensure that things improve and that wrongdoers are held accountable.
