Nursing Home Neglect

The Absence of Care

Nursing homes are charged with the duty of providing residents the care necessary to maintain the resident’s physical, mental and psycho social well being. Naturally as a resident ages these three health components will deteriorate. This is inevitable. However, a nursing home facility, by law, must not deprive a resident of the care necessary to attain their optimum health. If the nursing home does, it may be neglect.

  • Low nursing staff level
  • Inattentive care providers
  • Indifferent care providers
  • Incompetent care providers
  • Frustrated or stressed out care providers
  • High staff member turnover rates
  • Residents with poor hygiene
  • Unsanitary living conditions

  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Bed Sores
  • Contractures
  • Poor dental Hygiene
  • Depression
  • Uncharacteristic Anger
