Recently, we wrote about the issue of wrongful deaths in nursing homes.  Unfortunately, the issue has continued to gain more attention in the news.

Some of the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect can include:

  • Sudden weight loss
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Bedsores
  • Bruises
  • Unusual changes in behavior
  • Changes in hygiene
  • Environmental cues, such as unsafe conditions, poor lighting, cluttered floors, and understaffing
