Your loved one deserve better care: Get help if they're hurt

Nursing homes are supposed to be places where your loved ones can get the care and support they need. There is never a reason why they should be in danger there.

Unfortunately, the reality is that some nursing homes don't provide appropriate care to the people who live there. Residents may develop serious illnesses and injuries as a result of this lack of care as well. Common issues may include bedsores, falls and infections, all of which can be prevented with the right medical and safety procedures in place.

What should you do if your loved one is injured in a nursing home?

To begin with, a single fall or injury isn't always a sign of negligence. It does mean, however, that you should be paying attention to what happens in that nursing home and check in frequently. Sometimes, injuries happen and there really is nothing to blame other than old age or clumsiness. However, if you see repeat accidents or one egregious incident, then it's time to speak up and take step to protect your loved one.

What should you do if you feel that the care your loved one is receiving isn't sufficient?

If there is a reason why you believe their care isn't up to standard, talk to the nursing home director or lead nurse or doctor. There may be aspects of your loved one's care that you don't see. However, if injuries or infections continue, you may want to look into having your loved one transferred to another care facility and to look into your legal options.
