Dehydration & Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

Passionately Protecting the Defenseless

Dehydration is the excessive loss of water in one’s body, which can lead to several dangerous disruptions to the body’s natural functions. Dehydration is especially risky for very young children and the elderly, which is why it essential one is constantly replacing fluids as they are lost. If dehydration becomes chronic in the elderly, health complications can become life-threatening--thus, it is essential any and all caregivers or nurses make sure their elderly patients are well taken care of at all times.

Nursing home abuse is a growing epidemic in this country. Sadly, elderly patients who are abused in nursing homes are not likely to speak up for fear of retribution or retaliation, and many of these cases go unnoticed until it is too late. Dehydration is one of the most common forms of abuse in nursing homes, but it is quite difficult to monitor or track unless one looks out for the warning signs of increased irritability, headaches, dizziness, loss of appetite, fatigue, dry skin and mouth, deliriousness, etc.

Many health issues are caused by dehydration, including but not limited to:

  • Pneumonia
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Confusion
  • Ulcers
  • Bed sores
  • Disorientation
  • Weakness
  • Electrolyte imbalances
  • Death
