Malnutrition/Dehydration In New York Nursing Homes

A nursing home should be a safe haven for our elder relatives — a place where we don’t have to worry about them forgetting lunch or skipping a meal due to illness or depression. When a loved one in a nursing home shows signs of malnutrition or dehydration, something has gone seriously wrong.Whether a nursing home staff member intentionally starved your loved one, or the malnutrition/dehydration was the result of negligence, error or inadequate staffing levels, the nursing home has breached its ethical and legal duty. At Gillette & Izzo Law Office in Syracuse, we want to help you hold it accountable.

You Deserve Answers

How could this happen? Who is responsible? How can you prevent it from happening to someone else? You understandably have a lot of questions. We’ll help you get answers. Attorneys Joshua Gillette and Janet Izzo are fierce advocates for injured nursing home residents. They will take immediate action on your behalf.

Is Your Loved One The Victim Of Malnutrition Or Dehydration?

Malnutrition and dehydration can go on for months before it is discovered. Disabled residents may not be able to convey the malnutrition or dehydration they suffer, or may fear repercussion. Even though they are trained to notice it, nursing home workers may neglect to act on the signs of malnutrition.

Whether you have noticed changes in your loved one or have lost a loved one to nursing home negligence, we can help you determine whether they have been the victim of malnutrition or dehydration. Signs or malnutrition and dehydration include:

  • Change in skin color or dryness
  • Weight loss and muscle loss
  • Changes in mouth, gums and teeth, such as bleeding and dry mouth
  • Unexpected memory loss or confusion
  • Chills and dizziness
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Vomiting
  • Seizures

If your loved one is showing these signs and you suspect he or she is being abused or neglected, speak up.
