If you are curious about the types of nursing home abuse cases that are most common, read on, this article is for you.
The most typical nursing home cases deal with falls where elderly residents or demented residents are not put into the proper safety gear or ignored and they attempt to walk on their own. You also see many cases where medications are either stolen or not provided in a timely manner. Sometimes the cases revolve around where two or three doses of the medication are provided to a resident. You may also see cases where residents are not moved and there’s decubitus ulcers forming on their body that later become infected or where the resident is neglected and they simply dehydrate or starve. It all is dependent on the circumstances in each and every case and there are way too many to really list in one spot. My best advice to you, is if you believe there’s been a nursing home violation is to call the IDPR and request an independent investigation of the injury.
Once an investigation has been opened, it will be in your best interest to get in contact with a personal injury attorney that is experienced in handling nursing home abuse cases.
