Columbus Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer

Types of Nursing Home Negligence

Nursing homes are highly regarded for the care they provide to our elderly and disabled loved ones. That is why it seems incomprehensible when these institutions break our trust, and worse, cause our loved ones harm or injury. If you or a loved one is a victim of nursing home neglect, reach out to The Mark Casto Law Firm, PC right away. Out of all the personal injury cases we’ve handled in years, our Columbus personal injury attorney takes nursing home negligence more earnestly not only because of the physical, emotional, or financial pain it causes but also because the victims are mostly those who cannot stand up for themselves.

The types of nursing home negligence case we usually handle include:

  • Physical neglect- When patients do not receive adequate help when it comes to their hygiene such as bathing, brushing their teeth, changing their clothes or sheets, and more.
  • Basic needs neglect- When patients are not provided with proper and reasonable food, water, and clean living environment.
  • Medical neglect- When patients are not given proper medication and preventative care for medical concerns such as infections, bed sores, cuts, and other illnesses or diseases.
  • Emotional or social neglect- When patients are ignored, left alone, or spoken to in a degrading manner by the nursing home staff

Signs of Nursing Home Negligence or Abuse

There are many cases of nursing home neglect or abuse occurring every day. Sadly, the majority of the cases are left unreported because the victims are unable to express the neglect or abuse inflicted upon them. This is why it’s important for family members to keep an eye out on both obvious and subtle signs of nursing home neglect.

Some of these warning signs include:

  • Bed sores
  • Physical injuries such as bumps, bruises or cuts
  • Sudden weight loss or malnutrition
  • Sudden withdrawal from interacting with others
  • Increased anxieties or fears
  • Sedated behavior

Family members should also be wary when the nursing home staff refuses to leave your elderly or disabled loved one alone with you. Make sure that you have quality time to talk with your loved one on your own to check up on their wellbeing without fear.
