How can I tell if my loved one has been the victim of nursing home negligence?

Nursing home negligence and abuse can be a difficult issue to deal with, particularly because many victims are not fully able to communicate their mistreatment or may feel threatened into silence. However, there are a number of common warning signs that can indicate various types of abuse or negligence. These include symptoms of malnutrition or dehydration, bed sores, emotional withdrawal, or the appearance of unexplained bruises or other injuries.

Fortunately, victims of nursing home abuse and their families may be able to take legal action against the facility or staff member at fault.
