Wrongful Death from Nursing Home Abuse

In nursing homes, wrongful death can be the result of abuse and neglect. If you lost a loved one to a negligent nursing home, you can seek financial compensation on your loved one’s behalf. In Washington DC, a representative of the victim’s estate can initiate a claim. To file a successful wrongful death claim, you must be able to prove that the care of the nursing home not only breached the accepted standard, but also resulted in the death of your loved one. Because nursing home residents often have pre-existing medical conditions, it’s important to work with an attorney who can investigate and prove the death wasn’t caused by these conditions, but by negligent care.

Examples of Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

Nursing home abuse is not just limited to physical abuse. Elder abuse can also take place in the form of emotional abuse, financial exploitation, sexual abuse, and neglect.

Common examples of nursing home abuse include:

  • Immobile patients are not moved or rotated, leading to bed sores
  • Residents who are at a risk of falling are not properly supervised
  • Residents who suffer from dementia wander out of the facility
  • Residents are not given the proper dosage or type of medication
  • Residents are deprived of basic necessities, like food and water
  • Life-threatening medical conditions are ignored by staff members

Recognizing the Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

While some signs of nursing home abuse are obvious, others can go undetected. In order to stop or prevent further abuse, you will need to know how to spot the signs.

Some of the most common signs of elder abuse include:

  • Unexplained bruises, lacerations, sprains, or bone fractures
  • Sudden changes in behavior, such as agitation or depression
  • Tension between staff members and the nursing home resident
  • Poor personal hygiene, soiled bedding, or signs of malnutrition
  • Signs of over-medication or, alternatively, under-medication
  • Noticeably hazardous or unsanitary living conditions
