Nursing Home Abuse? Don’t Wait to Get Help.

Even the best nursing home facilities can be guilty of abuse or neglect. All it takes is one irresponsible or negligent employee to put the well-being of residents at risk. And when that occurs, the results can be devastating.

Nursing home abuse and neglect comes in a variety of forms. It’s important that you recognize signs of abuse early to ensure your loved one’s safety. Some common signs of nursing home abuse or neglect include:

  • pale complexion
  • poor hygiene
  • bruises or broken bones
  • malnutrition
  • changes in mental or emotional stability
  • anxiety or depression
  • unauthorized changes to medication
  • offensive odors

If you suspect your aging loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, the first thing you should do is get them to safety. Do this immediately. The sooner you get your loved one out of harm’s way, the better. Their life could depend on what you do next.

Once their safety has been secured, call an Indiana nursing home abuse attorney at Stewart & Stewart. We know your loved one’s rights and will do everything within our power to protect them. You don’t have the luxury of time in this situation. Contact us today.
