Many of us assume that a loved one would tell us if abuse was happening to them. Unfortunately, many elderly Americans assume that no one will believe them or they are fearful of retaliation from the staff. If you discover injuries on your loved one and they cannot explain the origin, it becomes a major cause for concern.
The nursing home or assisted living facility has a duty to inform you or any and all injuries your loved one may suffer under their care. If those injuries are not communicated promptly or without proper explanation, you have a right to investigate and get answers.
The most common injuries to the elderly in nursing homes are:
- Cuts and scrapes
- Bed sores
- Internal bleeding
- Fractured or broken bones
- Sub-dural hematoma, or bleeding and swelling of the brain
