Be Vigilant! You Can Prevent Nursing Home Negligence
Georgia Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Attorneys: Prieto, Marigliano, Holbert, & Prieto, LLC.
If a parent, grandparent or any other loved one is being treated in a nursing home or residential care facility, there are steps you can take to improve the quality of care that person receives.
To help reduce and prevent nursing home negligence and abuse:
- Visit your loved one frequently at the facility
- Alter your visiting time so that staff members don’t anticipate your visits
- Ask questions about your loved one’s care, including nutritional needs and medications
- Speak with the onsite medical staff and treating physicians
- Don’t be afraid to be diligent; follow-up with staff about issues that concern you
- Contact an attorney if you suspect your loved one is being abused or neglected
Do not be afraid to ask questions and be persistent – your loved one will receive better care if the nursing home employees know that you are watching their actions and taking note of substandard care.
