New York City Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
When a resident is not eating properly, it is the nursing home's duty to intervene and work to seek solutions that are designed to promote better nutrition and safety for a nursing home resident. Frequently, if a resident does not eat what is served at a nursing home or assisted living facility, the staff fails to address the needs of the patient until the patient's health has dramatically declined and they are at great risk of suffering serious bodily injury or death.
Malnutrition and dehydration are major causes of death and serious illness and easily capable of being prevented by proper care at a nursing home and/or assisted living facility.
Nursing homes are responsible for making sure that their residents receive proper nutrition and do not suffer from malnutrition. One sign of improper nutrition and dehydration is weight loss. Dehydration and malnutrition may cause a patient's vital organs to shut down and place the patient at greater risk for fractures as a result of slips and falls, dementia, and other serious conditions.
