Evaluating Nursing Homes in Queens, New York

When you put a loved one in a nursing home, you expect treatment and care that you simply cannot provide at home. But how do you know that your loved one is receiving that care?

Watching for Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence in Queens Nursing Homes

If a loved one is living in a nursing home in Queens, you need to watch carefully for signs of elder abuse and nursing home neglect.

Neglect in nursing homes often occurs when residents do not receive adequate assistance with:

  • Proper body positioning, which can lead to bedsores
  • Eating and drinking, which can lead to malnutrition and dehydration
  • Bathing or hand washing, which can lead to infection and poor hygiene
  • Going to the bathroom or changing disposable briefs, which can result in residents falling or being left sitting in their own urine and feces
  • Walking, which limits mobility and suggests that care plans are not being followed
  • Participating in other activities, which can lead to isolation and withdrawal

It is important to recognize whether your loved one is receiving the proper care and assistance they need. It is also important to watch for signs of financial abuse, physical abuse, sexual assault and medication errors.
