Psalms 73:26 - “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
A “nursing home injury” refers to either the abuse to and/or the neglect of a resident of a nursing home, assisted living facility, convalescent home, elder residential facility, senior living facility, retirement home, old soldier’s home, old age home, rest home, etc.
Whether it’s one or both of your parents, or even your spouse, it’s critical for you (and other family members) to stay actively involved and vigilant to ensure your loved one receives the best possible care while in the nursing facility.
Many nursing homes are often understaffed, the staff are over worked and under-trained. These and other factors may lead to unsafe conditions, poor treatment, and staff taking frustrations out on the nursing home residents.
Signs of nursing home abuse or neglect may include:
- Unexplained broken bones, dislocations or sprains
- Bruising, scars or welts
- Medication Errors
- Signs of restraint
- The refusal of the caregiver to let you be alone with the elderly person
- Non-typical behavior of the resident
- Malnutrition and Dehydration
- Bed sores or soiled bedding or clothing
- Unexplained decay-type/urine odors
- Sudden loss of weight
- ... Just to name a few.
