Malnutrition & Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home residents are vulnerable to malnutrition especially if caretakers are irresponsible and may neglect the residents. When you place a loved one in the care of a nursing facility you expect the best treatment and care to be provided to them. However, malnutrition is one of the most common forms of nursing home neglect. Malnutrition has very visible physical symptoms such as extreme weight loss and visible dehydration. It can also cause weakened immune systems making a person vulnerable to other infections and diseases. If you or a loved one has been a victim of such neglect, do not hesitate to discuss the situation with a skilled and knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible.

Protect Your Loved Ones

It is very important that your loved one receives a healthy and balanced diet. Nursing home patients are usually older, senior citizens or people who are unable to take care of themselves due to a disability. Nursing home caretakers are entrusted with the responsibility to take care of these people and it is very important that they provide the basic needs and look after their wellbeing. Malnutrition can have serious side effects and may also result in wrongful death. Hiring a lawyer can help in fighting back against the negligence of such care providers by tackling the problem at its source.
