When our loved ones are no longer able to care for themselves, we often look to nursing homes as a comfortable and safe environment for our elderly family members. Every day, people put their trust in nursing home staff members to provide the proper care and attention for their residents. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse and neglect is relatively common. Many people are unaware of the sad truth that elderly patients and residents are subject to mistreatment in nursing homes all over the country. As a society, we tend to shy away from this disturbing and upsetting topic, but it is important to be informed. If someone you love currently lives in a nursing home, there are a few telltale signs of abuse and neglect of which you should be aware. The most common signs of nursing home abuse include bedsores, bruises, personality changes, weight loss, and unsanitary living conditions. If you suspect your loved one is being mistreated in their home, you should follow a few steps.
