What Are The Common Forms of Nursing Home Abuse?
In most instances, long-term care problems arise because of the lack of properly trained staff. Most facilities pay minimal wages and operate on shoestring budgets. Unfortunately this leads to very serious problems for residents. Residents cannot be deprived of their right to a dignified existence while residing in the nursing home or long-term care facility. Elderly family members are entitled to an excellent quality of life in their latter years. Long-term care facilities have been entrusted to provide that dignity.
Other common problems are wandering, choking while eating or drinking and, urinary tract infections. The latter can be a cause of contaminated catheters, or poor hygiene when dealing with adult diapers. Fecal and urine odours are a sign of improper hygienic practices and can lead to serious infections.
