Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing Home Abuse

Hidden abuse can manifest in various ways. Although it’s not uncommon for an elderly individual to experience a slip and fall, a pattern of frequent or suspicious falls warrants scrutiny. It’s essential to rely on your instincts and engage in a conversation with one of our attorneys regarding your concerns.

Abuse, negligence, malnutrition, and dehydration can result in severe symptoms and injuries to the elderly, such as:

  • Broken bones
  • Unexplained bruises and lacerations
  • Bed sores
  • Untreated medical illnesses
  • Poor hygiene
  • Noticeable weight loss
  • Soiled clothing and linens
  • Depression and anxiety

If your loved one is experiencing nursing home abuse, please call our firm at (843) 438-7480 or reach out online to schedule your initial consultation.

Not All Elder Abuse Is Physical

Abuse frequently encompasses emotional and mental dimensions, which can sometimes be the most distressing and isolating forms of mistreatment. These cruel actions can result in lasting emotional wounds or harm to your loved one’s psychological well-being, leading to a diminished sense of self-worth and self-esteem. Instances of mental and emotional mistreatment may arise when caregivers disregard personal concerns or employ hurtful language toward residents who rely entirely on them for their welfare.
