Nursing Home Neglect Peoria IL
Dehydration and malnutrition indicate neglect in nursing homes; treat all warning signs seriously. Abuse can be in the form of sexual and physical assault. Poor care can result in medication errors or improper supervision during transfers or ambulation resulting in falls, fractures and sometimes, death. If your loved one’s condition changes or declines, you and your doctor must be notified.
Sudden weight loss, loss of communication, and unexplained bruising or other injuries are warning signs. Bed sores, falling, and emotional distress or withdrawal are also factors that should alert you to the possibility of elderly abuse and neglect.
Be present at the facility and talk to staff and representatives to let them know you expect a higher level of care for the elderly at their nursing facility. All residents must receive the same care and attention. Demand proper treatment for any elders receiving abuse or neglect.
