Nursing Home Aspiration & Pneumonia Lawyer in Greenville

Advocating for Victims of Abuse & Negligence

Whenever a loved one of ours must enter a nursing home because we no longer have the time or resources to fully take care of them, nothing is more devastating then coming to learn that they have been mistreated. In extreme cases, elderly patients can experience life-threatening and even permanent consequences due to the negligence or abuse of their caretakers. One of the most serious conditions that can arise is aspiration pneumonia, which is a dangerous infection that requires hospitalization.

As immune systems become compromised with age, people are more likely to contract various illnesses and infections. This condition is absolutely preventable, and is usually caused due to a lack of oral care and hygiene. Other causes of this infection include but are not limited to being fed through a tube or ventilator, weakened muscles in the throat, usually caused by a stroke or Alzheimer’s. While this may occur even in the safest nursing homes, caregivers and caretakers can either stop it in its tracks or prevent it from ever even occurring by paying more attention to their patients.

If you are concerned your elderly loved one is suffering from aspiration pneumonia, look out for the following symptoms:

  • Coughing up green or dark phlegm
  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Blue discoloration of the skin
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Wheezing
  • Bad breath
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Loss of appetite
  • Raspy voice
  • Weight loss
