Protecting Residents from Abuse and Neglect in Health Care Facilities

At BEK Law, we hate to see these cases because they are avoidable. Here are a few tips to protect your loved one from becoming a victim:

  • Make your visits unpredictable – Visit frequently and on different days at different times
  • Keep a journal documenting your observations
  • Don’t be afraid to check for bedsores, bruises and sensitivity to pain
  • Take photographs of the patient every time you visit, paying particular attention to any changes in appearance
  • Compare the medications actually consumed to those in the chart that were allegedly provided

If you notice any signs of neglect, such as declining health of the patient, or abuse (bruises, skin ailments, bedsores, redness or bleeding around the genitals), contact us right away even if the person suffering from neglect does not talk to you about it.
