COMMON SIGNS & TYPES OF NURSING HOME ABUSE IN WEST VIRGINIA
The signs of nursing home abuse or neglect can vary widely, however, it is important to know a few common things to look out for. For example, if your loved one’s personality has changed drastically or you notice that they shy away from your touch, these could be signs of physical or emotional abuse. If you notice your loved one has lost a significant amount of weight or seems weaker than usual, they could be malnourished. It can be difficult to see these signs right away but if you suspect your loved one is not being taken care of, our Harrison County nursing home abuse lawyer in West Virginia can help.
Some common forms of nursing home abuse or neglect include:
- Physical abuse, including pushing, hitting, or beating

- Improper medication or medical care
