Victim of Elder Neglect? Call (520) 624-4228

There is not "one kind" of nursing home neglect or abuse. In fact, there are many different types of forms that it takes. Sometimes, nursing home neglect comes down to failing to make sure that somebody who could fall and be seriously injured is protected from themselves. For somebody who is likely to fall out of their own bed, there are measures that can be taken to try to ensure their safety. When those measures are not taken, this is often a form of nursing home neglect. Sometimes, the neglect goes beyond just simple mistakes that should have been corrected and goes to outright abuse. There are times where elderly people suffer broken bones, bruises, swelling, cuts, and other physical injuries at the hands of the caretakers due to truly abusive conduct.

While emotional and psychological abuse are harder to prove, they may also come along with the physical abuse and should be looked for. Do you see a sudden change of behavior in a loved one? Are there unusual behavior patterns that came from nowhere? Is it possible that the fair, depression, anxiety, or sudden frustration of a loved one is because they feel guilty telling you what is happening to them or they are afraid to do so? Obviously, your "gut feeling" may not be evidence at trial. However, that gut feeling could lead you to conclude that something is going wrong and allow you to take steps to not only protect your loved one, but to contacting a Tucson nursing home abuse attorney and possibly filing a lawsuit that will protect others in that facility or other Arizona nursing home facilities in the future.

What Are the Signs of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect?

Obviously, most people are not experts when it comes to figuring out whether or not their loved one is being abused or neglected. You may have a "gut feeling" that something isn't right, but you really aren't sure what signs to look for. There are many different signs and there is no comprehensive list. Having said that, you could look for things such as unexplained bruises, cuts, or fractures that were incurred while at the facility. Also, bedsores are a common sign of nursing home abuse or neglect. Also, if a loved one has joints that are no longer moving (joints that are frozen) that is often a sign of a lack of care and even abuse by the facility.

In some of the worst cases, there is unexplained vaginal or anal bleeding and bloody underwear that is a sign in many cases of terrible sexual abuse.

Sometimes, a loved one in a facility is unable to tell you about what is happening to them, either because physically or mentally they are not able to communicate it or because they are afraid to do so because they live in the facility. Keep a close eye on a sudden change in behavior with a loved one.
