Greensboro Nursing Home Dehydration & Malnutrition Attorney
Protecting Our Elderly from Abuse in Nursing Facilities
Among the many forms of abuse suffered by nursing home residents is dehydration
and malnutrition. It's sad and upsetting to think that many nursing
home residents go without food or water for extended periods of time in
the very places that should be taking excellent care of them.
If you have noticed sudden weight loss or that nursing home staff failed
to provide an IV for your loved one, you may have grounds to file a
nursing home abuse claim with the assistance of our Greensboro nursing home abuse lawyers
at Roane Law.

- Dry mouth and lips
- Extreme thirst
- Dry skin
- Lack of urine
- Low blood pressure
- Confusion and irritable behavior
Causes of Malnutrition & Dehydration in Nursing Homes
Dehydration and malnutrition in nursing homes commonly occurs due to the
staffing issues. In order to save money and make more profits, a nursing home director
may choose to not hire a sufficient amount of staff.
As a result, the quality of the nursing home's care plummets as staff
are stretched thin. Nursing home staff must make regular rounds to make
sure residents have been properly fed and hydrated, but sometimes these
rounds are infrequent, which can lead to dehydration and malnutrition.
What To Do If Your Elderly Loved One Is Suffering Abuse
If you suspect that your loved one has suffered dehydration and malnutrition
at a nursing home, you can put a stop to this negligent abuse by taking
immediate legal action.
By filing a nursing home abuse claim, you can make the nursing home accountable
for their actions and help protect your loved one's well-being, as
well as the other residents residing in the facility.
