What Is Nursing Home Neglect?

Nursing home neglect is a problem facing many of our nation's elderly. As people grow older they are less likely to be able to provide proper care for themselves which is why nursing facilities exist - to provide the care that the elderly cannot give themselves. We trust that these facilities have the right equipment, staff, training, resources, and ethos to take care of their residents. However, this often is not true. Many nursing home residents end up being abused or neglected at some point during their residency and studies have shown that abuse/neglect has detrimental results on their health. A nursing home negligence attorney Chicago can provide the legal counsel and expertise to help you or someone you love to get the justice they deserve. 

Elderly who are abused and/or neglected are 300 times more likely to die than those who are not abused/neglected. Considering that approximately 1 out of every 10 elderly experience abuse this is an extremely dangerous pattern that needs to be addressed by a nursing home negligence attorney Chicago. The Law Office of Scott D. DeSalvo is dedicated to helping fight nursing home neglect and abuse. If you are looking for a nursing home negligence attorney Chicago then call our office right away. Identifying nursing home neglect can be tricky, especially as a nonresident outsider. Here are some forms of nursing home neglect and their symptoms.

Types of Nursing Home Neglect

  • Physical: The literal physical neglect of nursing home residents by staff is one of the most common forms of nursing home negligence. Refusing to help residents relieve themselves, to help them get their meals or move around, failure to answer calls are all forms of neglect. Weight loss, bed sores, bruising, and other physical signs of injury are all evidence of negligence.
  • Emotional: The emotional neglect that many nursing home residents experience is extremely debilitating on their behavior, health, and morale. Many residents are ignored, emotionally neglected, and emotionally manipulated while at a nursing home. This kind of neglect can lead to emotional withdrawal, mental health issues, and moral degradation.

Nursing home neglect is a serious mistreatment of the elderly and often results in poorer health and a greater likelihood of death. A nursing home negligence attorney Chicago can help you and your loved one access the legal avenues necessary to get the justice they deserve. Call the Law Office of Scott D. DeSalvo for a free case evaluation.
