Is Your Loved One Facing Abuse?
Nursing homes should provide reasonable care and treatment to every resident. Despite many nursing homes being safe environments, others are not. Poor training, negligent staff, lack of sufficient staffing and other issues can give rise to inadequate care or outright mistreatment.
It is important to consistently check that a facility looks well-kept and has sufficient staff and security. Your loved one may be a victim of neglect or abuse if you notice:
- Bed sores
- Unexpected bruises or wounds
- Broken bones
- Significant weight loss
- Emotional withdrawal
- Other out-of-the-ordinary behaviors
If you suspect your loved one is being mistreated, you should consider investigating the matter and filing a claim against the facility for your loved one’s injuries if warranted.
Your Family Is Not Alone
After finding signs of abuse or neglect, you should write a complaint to the nursing home and contact a lawyer about your situation. You should never have to face this situation alone, especially when the process for filing claims can be overwhelming to someone inexperienced with North Carolina law.
