Seeking Justice For Victims Of Nursing Home Malnutrition
Dehydration can pose a threat at any age, but is particularly dangerous to the elderly. If left untreated, it can lead to low blood pressure, weak pulse and severe kidney problems. Malnutrition can compromise the immune system’s ability to heal as well as cause muscle weakness, increasing your family member’s risk of falling.
When you trust the care of your aging loved one to a nursing home, you have the right to expect that he or she will receive exceptional care. When the facility’s staff falls short by failing to provide adequate hydration and nutrition, however, they put your family member’s health, safety and emotional well-being at risk.
