Nursing Home Neglect Law in Buffalo, New York

Neglect Warning Signs

If you have a loved one living in a nursing home, you might want to periodically check for signs of neglect to know if your loved one is suffering. There are a few things you can check your loved one for, including:

  • Marked emotional or physical changes
  • Decreased function
  • No interest in usual activities
  • Being withdrawn
  • Bruising
  • Skin breakdown
  • Dehydration
  • Malnourishment
  • Sudden weight loss

If you don’t notice any of these things but still have a gut feeling that something may be off, take some time to observe the staff and the nursing home as a whole. Try to stop by during unexpected or various times to see how things are going and ask questions about what you are seeing. If the staff seems frantic or things appear chaotic, this could also be a sign that your loved one isn’t receiving the best care.
