Trusting a nursing home with your loved ones’ care is a serious decision. You expect those facilities to help and not hurt, but that’s not always the case. Some common conditions to recognize nursing home neglect are:
- Reoccurring infections – Check the medical conditions of your family member on every visit.
- Dehydration – Check for cracked lips, dry skin, and other common signs of dehydration.
- Unexplained Weight Loss – Take photos each time you visit to look for any differences with your loved one’s appearance.
- Bed Sores – Do a physical examination of your loved one’s body to see if there are any sores, discoloration, or any noticeable physical issues.
