What is the main cause of Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect in Wilson County?
Nursing home abuse and neglect in Wilson and any other county occurs mainly because the staff of the nursing home are not properly trained to handle certain situations. The other main reason for nursing home abuse and neglect is because there are typically not enough staff for all the residents in a home so the staff they home does have are overworked and stressed. This leads to mistakes, abuse and neglect.
This is why if you are considering a Wilson County nursing home or any other nursing home for your loved one that you go see each home before deciding on one. This gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have, see how many staff are available for each resident and see for yourself what kind of care the current residents seem to be in. You can see if they seem well looked after or if they are left alone too often. You can also check out how clean the nursing home is and visit the kitchen and dining room areas. You may even get a chance to talk to some residents about what they think about the home. These things will help you decide on which home is the best choice for your loved one.
It is also a good idea to go see your loved one as much as you can. This will allow you to not only see how they are doing but you can also see if the nursing home is still clean and if the residents still seem to be well cared for. If you notice anything unusual or your loved one seems to be quiet or scared or if they have visible bruises, scratches, or bite marks, you should inform the administration of the home about these problems right away. The home should address the problems but if they do not, you can speak to someone with the Tennessee Department of Health about what you have witnessed.
It is also recommended that you contact one of our experienced Wilson County nursing home abuse attorneys at the Higgins Firm.
