How Will I Recognize West Virginia Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect?
As nursing home abuse lawyers, we never hear stories about the facility coming out and admitting they neglected a resident. Instead, sadly, it is usually the family that discovers odd injuries or suspicious signs of abuse. Because these victims are often non-verbal, it is so important that you vigilantly inspect your loved one for signs of neglect.
Be on the lookout for these red flags of facility negligence:
- Soiled or stained clothing and bedsheets
- Dirty appearance
- A foul smell coming from your family member
- Dirty diapers
- Bed sores
- Broken bones from falls
- Infections and UTI‘s
- Significant weight loss
Any of the above injuries may indicate neglect. Contact our West Virginia nursing home abuse lawyer immediately to let our law firm investigate your potential nursing home negligence action.
Understanding Nursing Home Abuse Law in WVA
The West Virginia Department of Health & Human Services has adopted the federal regulations on what is considered nursing home abuse in West Virginia. This extends the definition of nursing home abuse beyond intentional physical abuse, to also include neglect or withholding resident care and supervision:
Abuse also includes the deprivation by an individual, including a caretaker, of goods or services that are necessary to attain or maintain physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being [of the long term care resident]. §483.5
