Malnutrition And Dehydration Are Signs Of Neglect
Malnutrition and dehydration are health conditions that can only exist in an environment of neglect. Seniors often have a reduced sense of hunger and thirst. As a result, nursing home staff must take proactive measures to ensure that residents are properly nourished and hydrated.
Dehydration is a dangerous medical condition that can lead to death. Malnutrition can lead to physical decline and starvation. If you think your loved one is suffering from malnutrition or dehydration due to neglect in a nursing home, contact our attorneys as soon as possible so we can review your case and explain your options.
