Nursing Home Negligence or Abuse

Nursing Home Negligence: Health care providers in nursing home facilities have a professional responsibility to prevent the injury and suffering of their patients. Nursing home abuse can occur when a patient does not receive the care necessary for a good quality of life. It is often difficult for a loved one to express when they have been physically or emotionally abused. Many feel they will be putting a burden on the family member, so too often, they choose to deal with the abuse.
There are signs to look for that may indicate nursing home neglect:
  • Unexplained accidents or injuries,
  • Extreme changes in your loved one’s condition in a short period of time,
  • Signs of dehydration or malnutrition,
  • Bed sores,
  • Unclean conditions,
  • Daily living needs not met,
  • Fractures,
  • Slip and fall accidents,
  • Death, and
  • Any other signs of physical or mental suffering.
Laws now exist to protect patients from nursing home neglect and abuse


  1. Medical malpractice occurs where a medical practitioner acts in a negligent manner when treating a medical condition. If you are a victim of medical negligence and you want to claim compensation, you should employ the services of an attorney. The attorney should be well versed and knowledgeable about claims of this nature and have a good track record. If the act of negligence has rendered you unable to work, you will be able to include this factor in your claim for compensation. Likewise if the doctor's negligence has resulted in you needing constant medical care for the rest of your life, this will also substantially increase the amount of your claim.
