Symptoms of Nursing Abuse

Our Rock Hill nursing injury lawyers suggest that you consult with a qualified legal representative at the very first sign of neglectful or abusive behavior. Oftentimes, the symptoms are brushed off as coincidental or the nursing staff writes off the accusations as the ramblings of someone suffering from dementia or senility. The truth of the matter is that it is far better to investigate and rule out abuse than to allow it to go on unchecked. Here are some of the symptoms you should pay attention to.

  • Your loved one develops an infection due to poor hygiene or the spread of bacteria throughout the patient population.
  • You notice the development or worsening of pressure ulcers, which signals that your loved one may be neglected or the staff is unable to attend to the needs of every resident.
  • Your loved one experiences severe mood swings or bouts of anger and depression.
  • You notice signs of assault or physical restrain such as bruises or marks on the wrists, ankles, arms or legs.
  • Your loved one makes an accusation or physical or sexual assault. Other indications can include your loved one becoming silent whenever in the presence of an abuser, so be on the look for signs of shame or fear.
  • Your loved one experiences symptoms of malnutrition or dehydration, which can include dark urine, fatigue, dizziness, confusion and unexplained weight loss.
  • Your loved one is hospitalized due to medication errors such as improper dosing and the administration of the wrong medicines.
