Atlanta Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

For most people, our adult lives are filled with joys and sorrows, stress and relaxation. We finish school, raise families, work 40 hours per week, and plan for the future. Our “twilight years” should be relaxing and enjoyable after a life of hard work and responsibility; unfortunately, this is not always the case.

Because of physical or mental impairments, many elderly individuals need to be placed in nursing homes for the care that their families are unable to provide. Seniors and their families trust that nursing home caregivers are specially trained to handle the needs of their residents, and many nursing homes are able to provide better than the standard of care. There are, however, facilities that do not provide the appropriate food, water, medicine, medical attention, toileting, grooming, and social and physical stimulation for their residents.

Signs of Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

Whether it’s because the nursing home is understaffed/untrained or because the staff simply does not care, nursing home neglect and abuse continues to happen throughout the country. Nursing home abuse may result in serious personal injury or death, so you need to be able to recognize if your loved one has been treated improperly. Some of the common signs of neglect include:

  • Poor grooming/hygiene
  • Sudden or severe weight loss
  • Bruising
  • Bedsores
  • Heavy sedation replacing supervision
  • Sudden emotional changes

No one deserves to be mistreated in any way, and nursing home residents are sometimes unable or unwilling to report abuse from their caregivers. If this is the case, being able to identify and report the neglect becomes the responsibility of the victim’s loved ones.
