Terre Haute Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

We trust nursing homes or long-term care facilities to respect our family members’ rights to safety, privacy, and dignity. But tight budgets, careless staff members, and lack of oversight can lead to violations of those rights. If you believe your loved one is a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, you may be wondering where to turn for help.

At Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin, our Terre Haute nursing home abuse lawyers know the law, and we want to help prevent future mistreatment. Let our well-versed personal injury attorneys help with your claim.

Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse occurs when staff members or facilities take actions that violate the rights of their patients. Taking an active role in your loved one’s care can help safeguard their health and wellbeing. We suggest looking out for these signs of nursing home abuse in elderly residents:

  • Untreated bedsores
  • Bruises or marks that suggest the use of restraints
  • Dehydration
  • Extreme weight loss
  • Malnutrition
  • Open wounds, cuts, or welts
  • Pale complexion
  • Poor personal hygiene
  • Torn clothing
  • Broken or missing personal belongings
  • Sudden withdrawal around certain staff members

Sings of Neglect in Nursing Homes

Unlike nursing home abuse, where staff members knowingly cause harm to patients, nursing home neglect is the result of failures to provide proper medical, physical, or emotional care. Signs of negligent nursing home staff include:

  • Lack of supervision, or allowing your loved one to wander off the property
  • Sudden changes in your loved one’s medications
  • Lack of proper heating or cooling within your loved one’s room or living areas
  • Irregular visitation hours or refusal to allow visits with your loved one
  • Unexplained changes in your loved one’s condition

If you suspect your loved one is being abused or neglected by a nursing home, assisted living, or long-term care facility, our Terre Haute lawyers are here to help your loved one get the care he or she deserves.
