Nursing Home Neglect

Arkansas Nursing Home Neglect Cases

Nursing homes around Arkansas are being fined for unsafe and neglectful conditions.

You trust Arkansas nursing homes to care for your elderly loved ones. Unfortunately, while many do receive proper care, some fall through the cracks left by understaffed facilities or undertrained workers and nurses.

 Nursing homes and, in some cases, hospitals cut corners to stay at or under budget and the victims are the people they're charged with caring for. 

This just isn't right. 

At Baim Law, we pride ourselves on being People Lawyers. To that end, we go to work for you if you suspect your loved ones are being abused or neglected. We hope you won't need us, but when you do, we'll answer the call. 

It's important to know that no two cases are alike when it comes to nursing home neglect or abuse. Here are some things to look for. 

Nursing Home Neglect Symptoms and Signs

Bedsores

Bedsores are preventable and can lead to serious, and sometimes fatal, complications.

Choking

Understaffed facilities is the main reason that nursing home residents suffer from choking incidents. With a fully staffed nursing home, dangerous choking situations should be avoided.

Falls

Unfortunately, falls happen, but sometimes the fault lies with improper care or nursing home negligence.

Broken Bones

Unexplained broken bones mean something happened that shouldn't have and, at the very least, should be thoroughly investigated.

Dehydration

The elderly should be properly hydrated at all times and dehydration is a clear sign that something is wrong.

Infections, Blood Poisoning, Sepsis

The elderly are more prone to sepsis than the general population, and conditions such as diabetes, cancer, and kidney disease can put nursing home residents at increased risk for this dangerous condition.

Weight Loss

Unexplained weight loss is a red flag when it comes to nursing homes. Sometimes it's the result of an illness, or natural aging, but if you suspect otherwise, our nursing home neglect lawyers will advise you. 

Malnutrition

We trust nursing homes to not just feed our loved ones, but feed them well-balanced healthy meals. When they fall short, the elderly suffer.

Unexplained Death

If you suspect your loved one's death could have been avoided, call us.
