Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers in Austin
Nursing home care is a very important part of the spectrum of family care in the United States. Many families rely on the service of nursing homes to provide care for their elderly loved ones. When a person places their elderly family member into a nursing home, they expect that they will receive the level of care which is promised. This is why it comes as a shock when one finds out that their loved one has been a victim of nursing home abuse. The abuse victims and their families have suffered in ways that no individual in our society should suffer through and are likely entitled to damages. Getting in touch with a Personal Injury lawyer is the first step in finding out about your rights and how you can seek justice.
Signs & Symptoms of Nursing Home Abuse
It is not always easy to tell when a nursing home resident has become the victim of abuse. They are often emotionally unwilling to report abuse or may be in fear of the repercussions of doing so. The relatives and regular visitors of such an individual should be alert to the following signs of potential abuse:
- Unexplained bruises and cuts
- Sudden changes in behavior which cannot be explained by the resident’s doctor
- Being prevented to visit alone with the patient
- Staff interfering with a patient visit
- Patient being over medicated
- Patient’s will, important documents, or bank account changing unexpectedly
