Residents with dementia or Alzheimer’s may have difficulty communicating. Others may be hesitant to report abuse or neglect for fear of staff retribution. If you suspect that your loved one may suffer from nursing home neglect or abuse, look for these signs:
Victim becomes upset and/or agitated, withdrawn or non-communicative, especially around nursing home staff.
Loved one exhibits rapid weight loss, weight gain or symptoms of malnutrition (i.e., mouth sores, dental difficulties, bruises easily, poor wound healing).
There are unexplained injuries, such as cuts, bruises or welts healing in different stages.
Victim displays sudden/unusual behavior changes (not wanting to be touched, biting, rocking).
Your loved one has frequent illness, especially if unreported to family members.
Up to this date in the US, approximately 1 in 10 elders have experienced some form of abuse. Some studies have reported that over 5 million elders are abused each year and only 1 in 14 cases of abuse are reported to authorities. During a time where elders should be treated with care, and kindness, there are still some of them who are the subject of inhuman treatments, especially at nursing homes.

Medical malpractice is the act of a medical professional treating a patient in a way that is below the standards that they agreed to uphold. This is only considered malpractice from a legal viewpoint if a patient is harmed as a result of the lessened standard of care.
Personal injury legal matters, which is considered torts in a legal sense, are taken very seriously. Personal injury is a category defined by the injury of a person that occurs as a result of the negligence of wrongdoing of an individual or company.
