Indiana Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
With nearly 40,000 residents in nursing home facilities across Indiana, there are a growing number of examples that point to poorly trained staff and lack of professional oversight as the reason for the mistreatment of our elderly loved ones.
When you select a nursing home for a parent, or loved one, you expect them to receive around-the-clock care for their condition. Too often, however, families are shocked to learn this is not the case.
Attorney Boulton has spoken to many clients whose parents suffered injury due to nursing home neglect, abandonment, or physical abuse. In each instance, most want to help ensure the same thing does not happen to someone else.
If you suspect your loved one has been injured in a residential facility, you should contact an Indiana nursing home abuse lawyer to learn more about your legal options.
Why You Must Pay Close Attention
Nursing home residents are often in poor health, and given their physical and/or mental state, are rarely unable to fight back, leaving them highly vulnerable to dangerous conditions.
Left unreported or unchecked, nursing home abuse can easily result in injuries that cause physical symptoms, depression, and even wrongful death.
It is also not uncommon to learn that an abused resident was also being threatened or intimidated by staff into staying silent. With this in mind, if you have the smallest suspicion that your loved one may be receiving poor care, it is critical that you speak up.
Common Signs of Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse
In addition to the obvious signs of mistreatment such as broken bones, bed sores, dehydration, and/or death, a large number of nursing home abuse symptoms can often be much more subtle.
Below is a list of symptoms signaling abuse which can lead to tragic consequences:
- Comments and statements from your loved one about poor care or treatment.
- Change in behavior or mood.
- Confusion or unwillingness to talk openly (this may signal physical or sexual abuse).
- Lack of concern for appearance, or poor personal hygiene.
- Bumps and/or bruising.
- Loss of appetite or refusing to eat.
- Not taking part or showing an interest in activities.
- Incontinence (this may be induced by emotional stress).
No matter the type of injuries or symptoms your loved one may have suffered, the number one key to preventing poor care is being vigilant and reporting any suspicions or perceived mistreatment.
