Recognize The Signs Of Nursing Home Neglect And Abuse
Many victims of nursing home neglect or abuse are not fully aware of what is happening to them. Others may be too scared to speak up.
These are some of the signs of nursing home neglect and elder abuse:
- Unexplained bruises or abrasions
- Dehydration or malnutrition
- Unusual emotional outbursts or withdrawal
- And others
