Nursing Home Malnutrition Can Lead to Serious Injuries. Call Carter Law Offices.
Nursing homes are under a duty to help residents achieve the highest possible level of health. Therefore, nursing homes must provide residents with healthy, nutritious food and adequate fluids. Nursing homes also have the responsibility to monitor residents to ensure that they are eating and drinking appropriately.
Unfortunately, too many nursing homes place a higher priority on squeezing every last dollar out of a nursing home facility rather than providing quality care. In an attempt to cut costs, nursing homes may not be staffed at appropriate levels. Overworked and unqualified staff may not make sure that your loved one is eating or drinking properly. If your loved one has been injured due to dehydration or malnutrition, you need a lawyer and a law firm dedicated to vindicating acts of neglect or abuse.
Carter Law Offices takes on nursing homes across the Kansas City metropolitan area. If you suspect that your loved one has been injured due to malnutrition or dehydration, contact us today.
Malnutrition and Dehydration may be the Cause of Other Serious Problems
Proper nutrition and proper amounts of fluid are vital for people living in nursing homes. Malnutrition or dehydration can lead to falls and other serious injuries. Dehydration can contribute to the development of bed sores and make it harder for the body to recover from a bed sore once it starts. In every nursing home neglect or abuse claim, our lawyer and staff will look closely to see whether or not your loved one was receiving proper amounts of food and water.
Carter Law Offices has a registered nurse on staff to review the evidence and determine whether or not malnutrition or dehydration contributed to your loved one's injuries. If malnutrition, dehydration, or some other form of nursing home neglect did cause injuries to your loved one, we will fully develop a case for your loved one's damages.
