by Mere Davis When our loved ones reach a time in their life when they can not care for themselves and we are incapable of caring for them, we put our trust in others and pray that they will be provided the best care available. Unfortunately, the research shows that may not always be the case. There will be roughly 3 million nursing home patients by 2030. Many of them, unfortunately, will be the victims of nursing home negligence. The following facts and tips will help you in choosing and monitoring a nursing home and ultimately determine whether or not litigation should follow an injury suffered by your loved one: Signs of Abuse and Neglect Bed sores Bums Fear and complaints Frequent crying Unsanitary conditions Unexplained injuries or broken bones Bruises and cuts Medication overdoses Dehydration Unexpected and unexplained death Injury Facts Nursing home patients typically fall each year and approximately 1,800 patients die each year throughout the country due to nursing home falls.
