Nursing homes are charged with the responsibility of taking care of people who are no longer able to take care of themselves. Even the most basic level of care should make sure that residents are properly fed. Unfortunately, malnutrition and dehydration are far too common in California nursing homes.
San Jose nursing home abuse lawyer John J. Garvey, III has been protecting the victims of elder abuse for more than 40 years. If someone you love has suffered malnutrition or dehydration as the result of nursing home neglect, hold the facility responsible for his or her suffering.
You want to believe that your loved ones nursing home is doing everything in its power to take care of its residents, but if you believe that something is wrong, do not be afraid to raise your voice. Family members are often the first people to notice the signs of malnutrition or dehydration.
Many California nursing homes simply do not have the staff to properly handle all of their residents properly. That is no excuse. It is their job to monitor residents and make sure they get enough food and water. If you notice your loved one losing weight or exhibiting any signs of malnutrition, you want to say something as soon as possible, so your loved one can receive proper medical attention as soon as possible.
