Signs of Nursing Home Neglect

Ensuring your loved one’s care with a nursing home is a difficult choice. And while a care facility may never be the same as home, your family member has the right to be treated with dignity, respect, and freedom. Signs of careless or negligent staff can include:

  • Allowing your loved one to wander off the premises
  • Inability to explain your loved one’s condition
  • Insufficient heating or cooling in your loved one’s living areas
  • Refusal of requests to visit your loved one
  • Unexplained changes in your loved one’s medication

You’re not alone if you suspect nursing home neglect. Our Arkansas nursing home abuse lawyers can investigate the details of your claim and help protect your loved one and other residents from future neglect.
