Roswell Nursing Home Malpractice Lawyer
Fighting for Victims of Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect in New Mexico
Nursing home abuse and neglect is one of the most horrifying things to imagine but, sadly, it happens far more frequently than most people realize. When trusted caregivers fail to provide the level of treatment and respect that elderly individuals deserve, they should be held accountable.
At Crow Law Firm, our Roswell nursing home malpractice attorney provides swift and aggressive representation for victims of nursing home abuse and their families. If you believe your loved one may be the victim of abuse or neglect in a nursing home facility, do not wait to contact the proper authorities. Then, as soon as possible, reach out to our firm for a free consultation regarding your legal rights and options.
Signs of Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
In many cases, nursing home residents are unable to speak up when abuse or neglect is occurring, either out of fear, confusion, or physical impairment. Because of this, it is absolutely critical that family members and loved ones are able to identify the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect so that they can take immediate action when suspicious activity occurs.
Some of the most common signs of nursing home abuse and neglect include:
- Unexplained bruises, cuts, and other injuries
- Falls and other accidents
- Lack of facility upkeep
- Soiled or stained bedsheets and clothing
- Poor staff-to-resident ratio
- Dehydration and/or malnutrition
- Over- or under-medication
- Medical errors/malpractice
- Sudden changes in behavior or mood
- Residents appearing unwilling to speak in staff’s presence
- Unexplained changes to a will
- Large withdrawals from bank accounts
Remember, nursing home abuse can take many forms. It may be physical, emotional, financial, or sexual in nature. Nursing home neglect, on the other hand, typically occurs when staff members simply fail to provide an adequate level of care for nursing home residents. Either form of nursing home malpractice can have devastating results. Do not wait to contact authorities if you suspect your loved one is a victim.
