Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect in San Diego
Entrusting a nursing home with the safety and care of an elderly loved one is by no means an easy choice, which is why so many individuals select nursing homes at the recommendation of others or turn to a large and well-known facility. The sad reality is that even the nursing homes and residential care facilities with good reviews and reputations can be at fault for abusing or neglecting residents. If you believe you or a loved one has been a victim of elder abuse/neglect-whether it is physical, emotional or sexual-you need to speak with our San Diego elder abuse lawyer immediately.
Identifying Signs of Abuse & Neglect in Nursing Homes
Nursing home abuse and neglect does not always stem from individual malice. Sadly, more often than not, abuse and neglect are the results of several factors. Improper staffing, poor training, and bad screening of employees can all create a breeding ground for abuse and neglect. No resident should have to bear the consequences of administrative oversight or carelessness. It is important that you remain vigilant and observant of any possible indications of abuse or neglect.Some of the most common signs of nursing home abuse and neglect include:
- Bed sores
- Weight Loss
- Urinary Tract Infections
- Personality changes
- Broken bones
- Soiled or dirty linen
