Why You Need a Santa Rosa Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Nursing home residents may face a variety of challenges. Families have to place them in an assisted living center because their loved one can no longer live independently. For some residents, taking care of a basic need such as feeding themselves is impossible without the help of nursing home staff. Sadly, malnutrition has become an increasing problem in nursing homes.
Malnutrition, or failing to properly feed a resident, can result in serious injuries and even a wrongful death. If your loved one was injured due to malnutrition in a nursing home, it’s important to talk to an experienced Santa Rosa nursing home abuse attorney about your rights. A lawsuit cannot turn back the clock, but we can work hard to make sure the administrators of the nursing home are held accountable. Call (707) 575-7141 for a free and confidential initial consultation.
HOW MALNUTRITION HAPPENS IN NURSING HOMES
Malnutrition may be a result of improper staffing at the nursing home. Administrators who put the bottom line ahead of the well-being of the residents may cut staff to the bone to save money. The workers are stretched thin and may not be able to properly care for all of the residents. When this happens, residents may not receive proper nourishment.
Malnutrition cases can be complex. The nursing home may argue that a resident received an adequate supply of food, when the resident has clearly suffered signs of malnutrition. If your loved one was harmed, let a nursing home malnutrition lawyer put resources and experience to work for you.
