Nursing Home Malnutrition Is Negligence

According to recent medical literature, roughly 20% of all nursing home residents suffer some form of malnutrition.  When instances of dehydration are included, the number of abused and neglected nursing home residents rises dramatically.

As dedicated nursing home injury attorneys, our team at Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA can help you and your family hold negligent nursing homes accountable for malnutrition and dehydration injuries.  Facilities that cannot even provide the most basic necessities to patients, residents, and loved ones should face aggressive and decisive legal action for the pain they cause.

Contact us now if you or your family member under nursing home care show any signs of malnutrition or dehydration, including:

  • Weight Loss
  • Listlessness or Irritability
  • Skin Changes
  • Red Eyes
  • Canker Sores or Thrush on the Tongue
  • Confusion or Memory Issues

Without direct complaints from the resident, identifying malnutrition or dehydration can be difficult.  If you have any reason to suspect that your loved one is malnourished or dehydrated, contact our attorneys now and let us investigate for you.

Nursing Home Malnutrition is Negligent

Nursing home patients and residents typically have little or no control over their dietary options.  Facilities and staff are responsible for meeting resident’s basic nutritional needs, including providing sufficient calories, vitamins, and minerals essential to good health.

There are a variety of reasons why facilities and staff may fail to provide adequate nutrition. Cost-cutting measures in the kitchen, understaffing, and untrained staff can lead to improper or insufficient diets.  Neglect or abuse may also be the cause of malnutrition or dehydration.

Regardless of the cause, there is no excuse.  Malnutrition or dehydration occurs because of negligence, plain and simple.  Our attorneys can help you take all actions necessary to prevent future injuries and hold negligent nursing homes accountable.

If you or your loved one suffered or are showing signs of malnutrition or dehydration caused by nursing home negligence, you need someone to protect your rights.  Call or email Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA now for a free consultation regarding your claims.
