Greenville, SC Malnutrition & Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Advocating on Behalf of the Innocent

When we leave our elderly loved ones in a nursing home, we never believe they may be in harm’s way. Danger is frankly the last thing on our minds when we leave our loved ones in the hands of a medical professional or caregiver--yet, more often than now, nursing home abuse occurs and causes irreparable damage. If the signs of malnutrition are not caught early on, the consequences can be quite difficult to come back from, and your elderly loved one will need to be seen by a capable medical professional as soon as possible.

Malnutrition, along with dehydration, is one of the most common forms of nursing home neglect and abuse. This occurs when an elderly person is having food withheld from him or her. This may also occur when an elderly person is being fed, but isn’t being given the right food with the necessary nutrients for optimal health.

The following are signs of malnutrition in your elderly loved one, including but not limited to:

  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Mental decline and memory loss
  • Dry skin
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness
  • Bloated abdomen
  • Decreased organ function
  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Fragile bones
  • Weakness

If you have noticed any of the above signs in a loved one, you must notify a medical professional immediately. Then, you must enlist in the help of an aggressive and skilled personal injury lawyer who will thoroughly investigate your case and fight on behalf of you and your loved one.
