Entrusting your loved one to a nursing home can be difficult, especially since you don’t know the people taking care of your family member. For this reason, it is important that you learn about nursing home abuse signs in order to protect your loved one.

Many people assume that the staff at a nursing home will take good care of their loved one, and often times this is the case. However, there are many elderly people who have been abused in Florida nursing homes or assisted living facilities. This is why it is important to notice if your loved one has any bruising, pressure sores, broken bones, or looks malnourished. If you suspect that your elderly family member is being abused, you should act fast and contact the proper authorities.

If you need legal representation, or if you just want to know if your family can pursue a civil claim for damages against the nursing home, you should contact Mallard Perez in Sarasota.
