Confirming Suspicions a Loved One is Being Abused or Neglected in an Ohio Nursing Home

Placing a loved one in the professional care of an Ohio nursing home facility should be a comforting feeling. After all, you expect your loved one will be receiving the level of attention, assistance and respect they not only need but deserve.

Unfortunately, there are frequent occasions when a family’s trust and confidence in the care of a loved one are violated by a nursing home facility. Sometimes the deficiencies in professional care are obvious while other times they are very difficult to see. You may suspect something is wrong but you can’t confirm your suspicions. You need to know what to look for with abuse or neglect. Then, you need to talk about your concerns with someone who can help you and your loved one.

With the experience gained in handling over 500 nursing home abuse and neglect cases, the Ohio law firm of Slater & Zurz LLP has the vast knowledge and resources to confirm or calm your suspicions.

Here are a few examples that may be indicators of abuse or neglect in an Ohio nursing home or care facility:

  1. Unexplained or unexpected death.
  2. Administering medications and/or prescription drugs erroneously
  3. Bed sores (also known as Pressure sores).
  4. Falls from lack of supervision or safety measures.
  5. Poor hygiene or foul odors.
  6. Bruises or cuts.
  7. Broken or fractured bones.
  8. Sudden or significant weight loss.
  9. Skin rashes or skin tears.
  10. Dehydration
  11. Disorientation
  12. Anxiety, Fear or Depression
  13. Inability or reluctance to communicate
  14. Use of unnecessary physical or chemical restraints
