Warning Signs of Chicago Nursing Home Negligence

Nursing homes have an important responsibility to protect the health and well-being of those who are entrusted to their care. Sadly, far too many nursing home staff and administrators fail to take this responsibility seriously, placing the lives and well-being of elderly residents in serious danger. Indeed, nursing home negligence can have extraordinarily serious consequences even in what appear to be relatively mild circumstances.

Unfortunately, it can often be difficult for family members to understand when their loved ones may have been the victims of nursing home negligence, particularly in situations where nursing home residents may already have difficulty communicating. Therefore, knowing the warning signs of nursing home abuse can be an invaluable tool in helping to stop or prevent this type of treatment.

Common Nursing Home Negligence Warning Signs

Nursing home negligence can take many forms, and as a result, the warning signs that this type of treatment has occurred can vary significantly. However, the following are some of the most common indications that negligence or abuse has occurred:

  • Dramatic and abrupt weight loss
  • Abrupt changes in mood or emotional state
  • Emotional withdrawal or refusal to talk
  • Bedsores
  • Broken bones or bruises
  • Dehydration

Any of these warning signs may indicate that negligence has taken place or is occurring.
