Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys in New Orleans

What Are the Signs of Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect?

Making the decision to put an elderly loved one in a nursing home can be difficult, but it is often made with their best interests in mind. Due to illness or age, they may have reached a point where remaining at home creates a hardship or even a dangerous environment for themselves and others. The family makes the decision to seek out a facility that has the resources and personnel to provide proper supervision and care, but what if they do not uphold an appropriate standard of care?

It is crucial to watch for potential signs of nursing home abuse or negligence, such as:

  • Unexplained and/or recurring injuries
  • Signs that physical restraints have been used
  • Broken eyeglasses or other damaged personal property
  • Refusals to allow private visits with elderly patients/residents
  • Withdrawal, depression, and suicidal thoughts or tendencies
  • Unexplained sexually transmitted diseases
  • Repeated falls
  • Stained or damaged undergarments
  • Signs of improper/inadequate hygiene
  • Bedsores, also referred to as pressure sores or decubitus ulcers
  • Unusual and unexplained weight loss
  • Unexplained financial withdrawals or expenses
  • Wandering or elopement due to improper supervision
  • Medication errors
  • Lack of proper medical care
  • Delayed treatment for illnesses or injuries
