Effects of Malnutrition on the Elderly
Signs of malnutrition can be challenging to detect and include a variety of symptoms, such as irritability, weight loss, and headaches. Our nursing home elderly abuse attorneys are knowledgeable in ways to investigate nursing home malnutrition effectively and efficiently in order to minimize harm.
We use a range of resources to evaluate the following malnutrition issues:
- Diminished appetite
- Lack of healthy food
- Physical decline
- Inadequate food intake
- Poor food options
- Medication side-effects
- Poor nutrient absorption
Once we have uncovered instances of nursing home malnutrition as a result of negligent care or intentional acts, we can vigorously fight on your behalf. It is important to hold the facility responsible for the failure to care for the patient so that this doesn’t happen to other nursing home or assisted living home residents.
Elderly Death from Malnutrition Complications
Nursing home elderly abuse can even cause fatal complications. If a resident is unable to eat healthy or appropriate choices based on a medical condition, he or she may suffer from fatal illnesses. Our Charleston nursing home abuse attorneys can help you through the difficult time after a preventable loss. We do everything that is in your best interests to hold the nursing home responsible. You can begin by filling out a free evaluation to tell us about your loved one's case.
