Neglect claims increase as number of nursing homes grows
Reports of nursing home abuse, neglect and exploitation are on the rise. The Fayetteville legal team at the Martin Law Firm help families in Arkansas whose loved ones have been the victims of abuse or neglect in a nursing home.
Signs and symptoms of neglect
- Personal hygiene neglect: Victims of nursing home neglect may not receive sufficient assistance with bathing, grooming and general cleanliness.
- Basic needs neglect: Nursing home neglect may take the form of a failure to provide basic needs, resulting in dehydration and malnutrition. Failure to provide a safe and clean environment also is considered neglect.
- Medical neglect: Bedsores are a major problem in nursing homes and result from remaining in a seated or reclined position for too long. Some nursing homes fail to treat the sores or are responsible for other forms of medical malpractice.
- Emotional neglect: Overburdened staff can let the stress of their everyday tasks prevent friendly interaction with elderly residents, which causes the residents to retreat to their rooms and withdraw from social activities.
