Is Your Loved One The Victim Of Malnutrition Or Dehydration?
Malnutrition and dehydration can go on for months before it is discovered. Disabled residents may not be able to convey the malnutrition or dehydration they suffer, or may fear repercussion. Even though they are trained to notice it, nursing home workers may neglect to act on the signs of malnutrition.
Whether you have noticed changes in your loved one or have lost a loved one to nursing home negligence, we can help you determine whether they have been the victim of malnutrition or dehydration. Signs or malnutrition and dehydration include:
- Change in skin color or dryness
- Weight loss and muscle loss
- Changes in mouth, gums and teeth, such as bleeding and dry mouth
- Unexpected memory loss or confusion
- Chills and dizziness
- Fatigue and weakness
If your loved one is showing these signs and you suspect he or she is being abused or neglected, speak up.
