Nursing home abuse is rampant in Texas. Many studies show that Texas has the worst nursing home care in the country. To make things worse the Texas Legislature and governors have repeatedly given these national corporations needless protection and free passes.
Nursing home abuse takes many forms. Bed sores are a common sign of neglect. Bed sores, also known as pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers, are caused by leaving patients in the same position for hours and even days. Bed sores can lead to serious infection and even death. If you believe your loved one suffers from needless bed sores we can help you understand how the nursing home failed your loved one.
Nursing home abuse can also lead to serious dehydration and malnutrition. Failing to properly feed and provide fluids to nursing home residents is all too common. Malnutrition and dehydration can cause patients to decline, the development of bed sores, avoidable infections, organ damage and death. Feeding tubes, often important for some nursing home residents, are often improperly maintained and flushed in nursing homes.
It is required by law for nursing home management to answer to any concerns you may have about their care of your family member or loved one. Ask about the situation and make note of their answers.
