Is It Elder Abuse? Is It Neglect? Physical Signs on Vulnerable Adults.
It is not always possible for people to visit their loved ones every day, or even every week. You may be too busy raising a family or maintaining a career to be available so frequently. You may live out of state or in a different city.
This doesn’t mean you are powerless to have an effect on your loved one’s medical care. There are warning signs that your loved one may not be receiving the level of care he or she deserves. Signs of nursing home or assisted living abuse are sometimes dismissed as side effects of old age or dementia.
Since this is not always the case, it is important that you recognize the signs of mistreatment, such as:
- Injuries attributed to falls
- Use of physical or chemical restraints
- Unsanitary or unclean physical condition
- Unusual lethargy or apparent depression
- Agitation or fear around certain staff members
- Physical pain, bleeding, or soreness in private places
- Bone fractures, sprains, bruises, burns, cuts, or abrasions
- Suspicious injuries, including bruises, burns, or open wounds
- Serious injury or wrongful death due to a medication overdose
- Perception of being drugged or “out of it” due to medication errors
- Loss of weight, as well as drawn features due to malnutrition or dehydration
