        Signs of Nursing Home Negligence

        Something that we want you to understand is extremely important is this— if you have even the slightest suspicion that your loved one is a victim of abuse at a nursing home, then you need to collect evidence of this. The second you see a sign of abuse we want you to try your best to get that on record either by taking photos or by collecting the medical records that the home has on your loved one. This will help us create a successful case.

        It is very unfortunate that a lot of the neglect and abuse that happens to our loved ones in nursing homes isn’t always apparent to us. It can sometimes be one big event and be glaringly obvious that it’s abuse or neglect or can take quite some time for us to notice. It’s not your fault if this happens to you and your loved one. It’s important though that you keep your suspicions raised to keep your loved ones safe. If your loved one for instance is losing weight, it’s important for you to find out why. If they seem scared of the staff, you want to figure out why that is the case. Any unexplained injuries should be taken note of. Do the best you can to collect any evidence that you see.

        We often look to see what the conditions are that your loved one is living in. If they are in the same bedding you saw them in a week ago that’s been soiled multiple times, that’s a pretty obvious signs of neglect. If your loved one can’t get up to go the bathroom and they are constantly left alone to soil their sheets, you have to consider why that’s happening. Clearly, they’re not getting the attention that they need. If they’re losing weight because of the nutrition that they’re being given, that’s abuse. Even minor changes like their behavior or anxiety level should be noted.

        Another thing that we need to look out for is signs of psychological abuse or neglect. If someone is left alone all the time with no social interaction and they only have a staff member come around and they’re terrible and nasty and verbally abusive to them, you will notice a change in the mental health of your loved one. That, too, should be taken note of right away.

        We understand that you may have heard of all sorts of issues happening in other nursing homes and you may be hesitant to bring a case against this one. We would rather you talk to us and set up a free consultation with our Kansas nursing home negligence of attorneys and be wrong rather than ignore all of these signs and never find out until it’s too late that your loved one is being abused.

        What is Nursing Home Negligence?

        A lot of people, as mentioned, can be hesitant to file a claim because they aren’t sure what nursing home neglect or abuse actually looks like. Here are some examples to give you a good idea of what some cases have involved:

        Recently, we handle the case of someone’s parent with Alzheimer’s in a nursing home facility who was left unattended by a staircase with their wheelchair unlocked. During this unsuper vised period, they had a tumble down the stairs and unfortunately passed away from their injuries.

        We have also seen cases of loved ones who have been recovering from surgeries and left to soil their bedsheets. As a result, the surgical area became infected because of this lack of hygiene in the facility. As you may already know, infections in later stages of life can be fatal.

        We had a case where a loved one in a nursing home was not getting the nutrition that they needed, which ended up affecting their immune system and making them very ill. This illness led to their death.

        If you need more information or you need guidance on whether or not your particular case is considered malpractice, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with our Kansas nursing home negligence attorneys today.

        We fight tirelessly as if you are our own family to make sure that the justice you receive in the form of financial compensation Is as full as it can possibly be and covers all of the damages that your loved ones and your family have gone through because of the negligence of the nursing home. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’re waiting for your call.

        The Value of Your Case

        When there is nursing home abuse and we are fighting for financial compensation, we need to look at the damages. Often there will be money lost in association with nursing home abuse. Sometimes it’s because of medical treatment needed to help with the injuries your loved one has sustained; other times, it could be money needed to find a new nursing home where they are treated better. You might also need to have physical therapy or even psychiatric therapy depending on what type of abuse they’ve had to endure.

        In some cases, we can help you collect rehab fees if that is relevant to your loved one’s abuse case. Rehab could mean anything from physical rehab or psychological rehab to anything related to getting your loved one back to full health or as well as they possibly can be after they’ve experienced the abuse or neglect. This is considered economic loss, and we will fight to get you for compensation for your economic loss.

        Something that we also consider are your economic damages. This is compensation meant to help with getting justice for non-financial loss. That can mean the pain and suffering that your loved one had to go through because of the neglect and abuse. It’s harder to pinpoint a dollar amount for this but we can assure you that our Kansas nursing home negligence attorneys will fight for every dollar’s worth of non-economic damage that they’ve had to suffer through.

        The sooner you get in contact with us the sooner we can provide you with the results that you need. Do not hesitate to reach out to us as soon as you can.
