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
- Mental decline and memory loss
- Dry skin
- Bloated abdomen
- Decreased organ function
- Swollen or bleeding gums
- Fragile bones
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.
