There are always signs of nursing home abuse. Common signs and or symptoms of nursing home neglect are:

  • Broken bones or fractures
  • Bruising, cuts or welts
  • Bed sores
  • Frequent infections
  • Signs of Dehydration
  • Mood swings and emotional outbursts
  • Reclusiveness or refusal to speak
  • Refusal to eat or take medications
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Poor physical appearance or lack of cleanliness
  • Changes in mental status
  • Caregivers that do not want patient to be left alone with others

Not all patients with these symptoms have been subject to nursing home abuse but any sign needs to be examined. Do not count on the nursing home to have your best interest in mind. Contact our MD nursing home injury attorneys to have your case examined thoroughly.

In Maryland assisted living homes, nursing homes and hospice care organizations can be sued for abusing a person under their care. Per federal laws, the Nursing Home Reform Act and Maryland state nursing home laws a standard of care is to be adhered to regardless of age or overall health of patient.

Nursing home abuse almost always involves a nursing home worker, of which there are always way too few, intentionally harming a patient. This is completely unacceptable and our Maryland nursing home abuse lawyers will not stand for this.

In Maryland cases involving an assisted living home patient being injured their estate can sue for this as well. The same injuries can arise from both abuse and neglect cases in many instances. However, a pressure sore injury is always the case of nursing home neglect and not abuse. Bruising, burns, skin injuries, broken bones, emotional, mental and psychological trauma are more commonly seen in abuse claims.
