There is a large number of individuals who are nearing or have already reached the age where a nursing home is required. Unfortunately, some people find themselves in situations where the level of care and diligence falls far below the acceptable practice required under the law.
Negligence can lead to serious personal injury, and even death, to yourself and loved ones.
Actions that constitute negligence include; the neglect of a resident (emotionally, physically, or otherwise), not following care procedures of physicians (supervision for movement or washroom use, for example), or medical neglect (such as not providing basic care and medical supervision).
Some signs of negligence to look out for are, but not limited to:
- Bruises and/or bed sores
- Unusual changes in behaviour
- Unexplained injuries
- Dehydration and/or Malnutrition
- Unsafe environment
- Any other indications which seen out of the ordinary
