Defining nursing home neglect
According to the NCEA, elder mistreatment (i.e. abuse or neglect) is defined as intentional actions, resulting in harm or increasing the risk of harm. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, it can be hard to know if your loved one has suffered from such abuse or neglect. Maybe your loved one is unable to report crimes due to fear of retaliation or poor cognitive skills. If you suspect someone you love has come to harm in a nursing home, we can guide you through the steps to ensure you and your loved one receive appropriate compensation and justice.
It’s important to know some warning signs of abuse, which can include the following:
- Malnourishment or dehydration
- Bed sores, bruises, or other physical injuries
- Poor hygiene
- Soiled bedding
- Withdrawal, agitation, complaints, or frequent crying
If you notice any of these signs, nursing home neglect could be the cause. Please call the Law Office of Andrew S. Kryder at (312) 223-1700 or click here to complete our simple questionnaire to arrange for a free consultation.
