Negligence during the COVID-19 Pandemic

COVID-19 has been spreading quickly in nursing homes, where residents are at a disadvantage because of age, underlying health problems, and living in close quarters. Since homes are restricting visitation, residents often find themselves feeling lonely, which might also cause mental health issues. Inadequate staffing, improper training and lack of a proper COVID-19 contingency plan mean that nursing home residents face greater hardship than just the virus. This can lead to many problems such as bedsores, improper treatment/medication, faster decline in health and malnutrition.

How Were You Injured?

Here are some common issues that harm elders in nursing homes:

Bedsores

If nursing home residents spend most of their time in a bed or chair, without being moved by a nursing home attendant, bedsores can develop on their hips, feet, joints, and back– wherever bones press against fragile skin. If left untreated, bedsores can cause infection, hospitalization, and even death.

Bone Fractures and Breaks

Falls are the most common cause of bone fractures in nursing home residents. It is the staff’s responsibility to prevent residents from falling by constantly monitoring them, carefully moving them, and assisting with walking.

Emotional Abuse

Verbal and emotional abuse can be very painful for nursing home residents. Signs of emotional abuse include changes in personality, loss of interest in activities, withdrawal from or fear of staff or other residents, or worsened depression.

Falls

Falls can be caused by any number of things – from medications to malnutrition. Most falls can be prevented by nursing home staff. If your loved one suffered a fall, make sure it was not due to mistreatment, abuse, or neglect.

Malnutrition

Residents who don’t get proper nutrition and hydration are at higher risk for bedsores, infections, and falls. Nursing homes must prevent malnutrition by carefully logging how much residents eat, offering a comfortable environment to eat in, and serving appetizing food.

Medication Errors

Medication errors are often due to the negligence of nursing home staff. Errors such as distributing the wrong medication or the wrong dosage to a resident can be potentially fatal, as medications may be essential for a resident’s survival. One of the most dangerous and severe medication errors is overmedicating residents.

Sexual Abuse

Nursing home residents are particularly vulnerable to sexual abuse. Many with advanced dementia cannot tell their families what is happening, so loved ones must be hyper-aware of this threat. Signs of sexual abuse include sexually transmitted infections, unexplained cuts or bruising, bleeding in the genital area, and extreme fear of a staff member or other resident.

Death

Elderly people who are abused have a 300% higher risk of death than those who are not. Nursing home residents are common targets for abuse and neglect. If your loved one died suddenly or suspiciously, their nursing facility may be to blame.
