Springfield Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Was Your Loved One Abused or Neglected?
When an elderly family member needs more care than you can provide, you

homes are supposed to be places of care and comfort where your loved one
can get the professional assistance they need, sadly, this is not always
the case. Some nursing homes are places of abuse and neglect.

nursing home, you may have grounds for a

Examples of Nursing Home Negligence
Nursing home negligence is any act that deprives your loved one of the
care he or she needs. Ultimately, this withholding of care could cause
your loved one serious harm. When this happens, you and your family should
act to hold the nursing home accountable.
Common examples of nursing home negligence include:
- Withholding of medication
- Lack of care
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Emotional abuse
Recognizing the Warning Signs of Elder Abuse
Sadly, spotting the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect is not always
easy—especially if your loved one is reluctant to speak up. This
is why you should know what to look for if you suspect that your family
member has been mistreated or abused in a nursing home.
Some of the most common warning signs of elder abuse include:
- Unexplained bruises or lacerations
- Symptoms of dehydration or malnutrition
- Sudden changes in mood or behavior
- Development of bed sores / pressure ulcers
- Reluctance to speak in front of staff members
- Unsanitary or unclean living conditions
