Residents in nursing homes understandably expect a high level of care, but unfortunately, sometimes the staff employed by facilities is not adequately prepared to take on a job with such high expectations. Some people are not cut out for that sort of profession, and it can lead to staff abusing nursing home residents. Nursing home injuries may be a sign of abuse within a facility, and abuse should not be tolerated. Nursing home abuse lawyers deal with cases of abuse on a regular basis, and if you believe you’re dealing with an abusive situation, you shouldn’t hesitate to contact one for help.

Unexplained Fractures, Cuts, or Bruises

When residents aren’t given adequate attention, they may fall, either when walking or when trying to get out of chairs or beds. When there isn’t adequate staffing on hand or the staff refuses to help a resident, it can lead to preventable injuries happening, and is a sign of nursing home abuse. Residents should expect that they can live safely while in the care of the facility. If you have experienced abuse like this, a Chicago nursing home lawyer may be able to help. Likewise, if someone you care about has unexplained cuts and bruises, or a broken bone that you think could have been prevented, nursing home abuse lawyers will be happy to help with your case and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Bed Sores

Bed sores, or pressure ulcers, are caused by neglectful nursing staff. When residents in a nursing home cannot move on their own, they rely on nurses and staff at the facility to help move them so that bed sores do not develop. Since they are easy to prevent, their development may be a sign of nursing home abuse. When staying in a nursing home, residents should be able to expect that they’ll be taken care of, not neglected. Nursing home abuse lawyers handle issues and situations of abuse and can help figure out if what you or someone you care for has been dealing with is a sign of abuse. If you’ve been injured due to neglect, or you know someone who has, don’t hesitate to speak with a Chicago nursing home lawyer to get the problem sorted out.
