Nursing Home Neglect

Nursing home neglect or abuse is one of the most horrifying scenarios for children to imagine when they place their parents or family elders in assisted living or nursing home facilities in Mississippi. The goal of these places is to provide care for your family members, but some individuals who work in these facilities aren’t concerned about caring for your loved ones.

Statistics indicate that up to 10% of the residents in nursing homes are neglected or abused. If you’re worried that a family member has been abused or neglected in a nursing home, beware of these warning signs:

Warning Signs of Neglect

Elderly abuse and neglect may take several forms, including physical abuse, verbal or emotional abuse, or outright neglect.

Look out for these warning signs if you fear a loved one has been mistreated:

  • Open wounds, bruises, welts or cuts;
  • Unexplained injuries, or a poor explanation for condition;
  • Unreasonable use of chemical or physical restraint;
  • Dehydration, signs of malnutrition, or bed sores;
  • Poor personal hygiene;
  • The person is upset or agitated;
  • The family member becomes withdrawn, isolated or non-communicative;
  • Reports of abuse or neglect by the family member or other residents.

Protect Your Loved Ones from Nursing Home Neglect or Abuse in Mississippi

If a family member or loved one has been affected by neglect or abuse in Mississippi, remember that you have rights.

Nursing home residents are protected by federal and state laws; most notably the Nursing Home Reform Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act, although other laws govern the way nursing home residents are treated. Don’t assume that the nursing home can get away with it.

No-one should have to live as a victim of abuse and neglect, and experienced nursing home neglect and abuse attorneys Darryl Gibbs and Rogen Chhabra can help your family.
