Is Your Loved One Suffering Abuse?

By Law Office of Mark Bush  Mar. 9, 2011 2:11p

Whenever a family finds that an elderly member of their family is unable to care for himself or herself or needs regular attention for medical or everyday needs, these loved ones often move into a nursing home for the care that they need. In nursing homes, we expect that an attentive and trustworthy staff will care for our family members every day that they reside there.  When the staff who work there fail in their duty to protect those living under their care, the results can be serious injuries, illness or even the death of elderly loved ones who should not have been injured.

Nursing home abuse is an absolutely unacceptable betrayal of the trust that we place in caretakers for our loved ones. If a loved one has been injured or suffered illness due to negligence on the part of caretakers at a nursing home, contact a San Diego personal injury attorney as soon as possible for legal guidance.

There are certain signs that may indicate abuse of an elderly person in a nursing home. As there are multiple forms of abuse these signs can vary in form and may include bedsores, rashes, cuts and bruises and sudden changes in behavior or sensitivity to physical contact. These may indicate types of abuse such as physical abuse, neglect, malnutrition, unwilling confinement, extortion, restraint and even psychological or sexual abuse.
