Warning Signs to Look For

- A Victim becomes upset, agitated, withdrawn or stops communicating, especially around staff.
- B Rapid weight loss, weight gain or symptoms of malnutrition (i.e., mouth sores, dental difficulties, bruises easily, poor wound healing).
- C You notice unexplained injuries like cuts, bruises or welts healing in different stages.
- D Victims shows sudden or unusual behavior changes (not wanting to be touched, biting, rocking).
- E Your loved one is frequently sick, especially if it goes unreported to family members.
Why File A Nursing Home Injury Claim?
Nursing homes receiving Medicaid or Medicare funds must comply with federal regulations. According to CFR 483.13, all residents have “the right to be free from verbal, sexual, physical, and mental abuse, corporal punishment, and involuntary seclusion.” Having a lawyer file your nursing home neglect claim holds abusers accountable for their actions and stops funding to facilities that violate federal standard of care guidelines.
