How to Detect Nursing Abuse

Even if you are ambivalent concerning the possibility that your loved one is being mistreated, our Oklahoma City nursing injury lawyers do suggest seeking some sort of legal counsel— even if only to determine whether you should conduct a deeper investigation. In order to help you detect the early signs of neglect or abuse, we suggest being wary of any of the following symptoms.

  • Any sudden change in health that comes without explanation. This includes weight loss, fatigue, confusion, dark urine, lightheadedness and mood swings. These could be indicators that your loved one is not receiving proper nutrition or hydration and some of these signs could indicate other forms of abuse.
  • Any accident that occurs because your loved one was not properly supervised or handled. Examples include falls that occur while getting into or out of a chair, bed or vehicle, being dropped while being lifted, slipping or tripping due to wet floors or clutter and accidents resulting when a wheelchair is left unattended.
  • Any change in mood or personality that does not have a reasonable explanation. The symptoms of abuse can mimic senility, dementia and other neurological disorders, so you need to consider whether your loved one is acting like him or herself. If you notice he or she acts paranoid while caregivers are present, experiences sudden depression or angry outburst or undergoes rapid mood swings, something may be wrong.
  • Any physical evidence of abuse. Physical indicators of assault need to be met with an urgent response for the sake of your loved one’s safety. There is no excuse for physical or sexual assault and restraint can be considered a form of assault as well, so look for bruises on the wrists or ankles or the genital areas as indicators of abuse.
