Coming to the realization that your loved one needs to move to assisted living can be difficult. But for many families, that’s just step one. Step two involves determining which nursing home they should move into.
There are nearly 1,000 nursing homes in Ohio, and that can make it extremely hard to pick the right one for your loved one. After many hours of research, tours, and paperwork, you finally get your loved one moved to a place they can hopefully call home—but what happens if their new home isn’t a place where they feel safe and secure? What happens if “home” is actually detrimental to their mental and physical well-being?
Nursing home abuse and neglect are unfortunate realities for many care facility residents throughout Ohio. When residents are mistreated in their nursing homes, it’s important for their loved ones to protect them, and that often involves moving them to new facilities. But how can you know if your loved one is in danger and in need of relocation?
Abuse can range from subtle forms of intimidation and harassment to outright physical violence. Be on the lookout for these signs:
Nursing home residents can suffer even if staff members never touch or speak to them inappropriately. Neglect can be even more serious than abuse, as it can result in a serious decline in overall physical and mental health, and it’s often more difficult to detect. However, signs that it’s occurring include:
Nursing home abuse and neglect can be matters of life and death. That’s why you shouldn’t wait to gather more evidence or see if the situation improves. In most cases, it won’t. In fact, it may even get worse.
It’s important to call an experienced Ohio nursing home abuse lawyer as soon as possible if you suspect your loved one is being mistreated.
