Nursing Home Malnutrition in Greenville, SC

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 not, 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.

What Causes Malnutrition in the Elderly?

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.

What are the Signs of Malnutrition in the Elderly?

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

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

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 nursing home malnutrition lawyer who will thoroughly investigate your case and fight on behalf of you and your loved one.

How Long Does it Take to Recover from Malnutrition?

Malnutrition, if caught early enough, can be treated with professional medical care. However, if this condition goes untreated for too long, malnutrition can cost an elderly person their life. Recovering from malnutrition can be a long road, depending on how severely malnourished the individual is. Treatment and recovery often involve the following:

  • Hospitalization
  • Gradually increasing the individual's nutrient and supplement intake
  • Treating any infections or other medical issues caused by the malnutrition

Hospital bills can pile up and it can put a tremendous burden on all parties involved. Not only can pursuing a lawsuit against the responsible party help offset these mounting medical bills, but it also helps hold the guilty party accountable for their negligence. Your loved one deserves justice!
