We recently launched an Oklahoma City nursing home abuse lawyer website. We've broken the site down into the following sections:
The article lists financial, physical, and even sexual abuse. The article tells the story of Nate Waters. He was paralyzed at the age of 19. He's since lived in three different nursing homes. He reported abuse at his nursing home, only to have one of the caregivers tell him to stop being a snitch.
He's now helping nursing home patients by educating support workers.
One of the biggest problems we see with nursing home abuse is that it is often unreported. That's why it's so important to pay attention to your family members that are in homes. Things to look for in potential nursing home neglect/abuse cases:
- Has the person started acting different?
- Has their condition drastically changed?
- Do they have any bruises or welts?
- Has their been any unusual weight loss or complaints of dehydration?
