Signs that Your Loved One is the Victim of Abuse

Our loved ones don’t always communicate the fact they are being neglected or abused, either due to fear or embarrassment. It is for this reason that our Sacramento nursing home injury lawyers suggest seeking the advice of a legal representative whenever you notice anything that doesn’t seem right. At worst, you’ll rule out a case of abuse and at best, you will uncover the evidence needed to hold an abusive or negligent nursing home accountable so that it is forced to render the quality service to its patients that they deserve in the future. If you notice any of the following, your loved one may not be receiving the treatment he or she has the right to.

  • Bedsores that appear for no reason or worsen due to lack of attentive care
  • Infections, which could be due to unhygienic conditions
  • Hospitalization due to medical errors, malnutrition or dehydration
  • The appearance of bruises or marks on the wrists, ankles or genitals
  • Sudden changes in your loved one’s behavior such as angry outbursts, mood swings, depression and the unwillingness to speak in the presence of a caregiver
  • Slips or falls that indicate your loved one was not under the supervision of caregivers
  • Your loved one accuses caregivers of mistreatment. Sometimes staff members will try to write these accusations off, claiming your loved one is confused or suffering from dementia. Investigate the situation anyway.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
