You spend time trying to find a facility that will provide a high level of quality care. Many nursing homes appear to have excellent care when you are visiting the nursing home to determine whether the home is right for your loved one. However, what is pertinent is the level of care that is received behind closed doors when you are not there with your loved one. While there are numerous nursing homes and elder care facilities that provide quality care, many do not. Our Dallas nursing home abuse attorneys will work aggressively on your behalf in an effort to protect you and your loved one.
Some of the signs of nursing home abuse include:
* Bedsores, cuts, bruises and lacerations.
* Medication that is not being given on a timely basis, or that seems to be disappearing too fast.
* Falls from a wheelchair or bed - this could indicate a lack of supervision or a lack of safe sleeping quarters.
* Stained or torn clothing or underclothing that indicates blood is present could be an indication of sexual abuse. This may be rare, however, there have been numerous cases of sexual abuse in facilities.
* Depression, violent behavior or withdrawal on the part of your loved one.
* Lack of hygiene care or meals not being provided on a timely basis.
* Dramatic weight loss.
When you suspect that abuse is taking place, immediately consult with administrators of the facility and decide whether you should remove your loved one from the facility. It is also advised that you contact a Dallas nursing home abuse lawyer so that you can be prepared, should legal action become necessary. We are well prepared for courtroom litigation if it should become necessary.
