How to Spot Nursing Home Neglect

Unlike elder abuse, neglect will not appear as bruises or sudden changes in behavior, but rather a deterioration in overall appearance.

Signs of neglect usually include symptoms such as:

  • Sudden weight loss – Usually brought on by malnutrition and dehydration, you will notice muscle mass decrease throughout the body.
  • Bedsores – Many elderly people cannot get themselves out of bed. When a person is left in their bed for long, uninterrupted periods, they may begin to develop sores in places where sweat accumulates and does not receive ventilation.
  • Sepsis – Neglect can also include improper care for wound sites. Unfortunately, with the weakened immune systems of elder persons, they are more likely to develop infections at sites where medication is administered. When proper sanitation is not performed, you may notice bad infections.
  • Wandering – If a resident of a nursing home or other facility is not monitored in a secure way, they may leave the premises and get lost. It is important for these facilities to properly keep their residents on the grounds of the facility.
