Malnutrition and dehydration pose significant health risks to individuals in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Unfortunately, these conditions can be difficult to recognize. Many elderly people have a decreased appetite or have difficulty swallowing or digesting food and liquids. Nonetheless, long-term care facilities have a duty to monitor residents to ensure that they are getting proper nutrition and adequate fluids.
If your loved one has experienced health problems in a nursing home or assisted care facility because of inadequate diet or hydration, you need an experienced attorney to protect their interests. Flynn Law Firm, PC, with offices in Wellesley and other locations in Boston, Worcester and Springfield by appointment, offers determined representation aimed at helping loved ones recover full compensation for injuries suffered due to the neglect or abuse in nursing homes.
Protecting Victims of Nursing Home Dehydration and Malnutrition Across Massachusetts
Dehydration and malnutrition are dangerous conditions that can lead to other complications, from decubitus ulcers or bed sores to an inability to resist infection. Furthermore, the lack of proper nutrition can negatively affect one’s ability to ward off disease or illness.
Many nursing homes and assisted care facilities operate with inadequate staffing, causing nurses and other caregivers to neglect a resident. Over time, this can lead to serious concerns about malnutrition, dehydration or other kinds of patient deterioration.
Flynn Law Firm conducts a thorough investigation of the practices of the nursing home or care facility, to establish the root causes of an injury. The standard of care and regulations governing these facilities are explored to show the careless acts of nursing home personnel led to a loved one’s injury or illness.
