Nursing Home Malnutrition Abuse
It is the responsibility of nursing homes to understand and attend to the needs of their patients. One of the most basic needs of any nursing home patient is daily nutrition. Some nursing home patients have special dietary needs and vitamin deficiencies as a result of age or illness. Nursing homes must take time to know each of their patients, develop a dietary plan that meets each of their patients’ needs and properly adhere to that plan.
At Kanoski Bresney, we have been advocating on behalf of injured people for more than 40 years. Our Springfield nursing home abuse lawyers help individuals and families that have suffered as a result of nursing home negligence and abuse.
What Should I Do If I Suspect Malnutrition Abuse?
Nursing home staff may use the age or illness of a patient as an alibi. If you suspect that your loved one suffered malnutrition as a result of negligent care, speak with an attorney. We have the experience and resources to investigate your case and aggressively pursue the full compensation you deserve.
If you believe a family member has been the victim of nursing neglect or abuse, contact the Illinois Department of Public Health to report your suspected violation. By state law, we may not file a claim on your behalf until after you have made a report to the Department of Public Health. However, you may contact us to discuss your case at any time.
