Savannah Nursing Home Malnutrition and Dehydration Lawyers

Your loved one could suffer malnutrition and dehydration for many reasons that are not related to the quality of care they are receiving at a nursing home. However, if your loved one is suffering because of nursing home negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.

If your elderly loved one has been injured because of nursing home abuse, contact The Nye Law Group's Savannah nursing home abuse lawyers. We have been fighting for the rights of nursing home residents for many years and have recovered fair compensation for many of our clients.

We proudly offer a free initial consultation, and we work on a contingency fee basis, which means that we are not compensated unless you recover compensation first.

Preventing Malnutrition and Dehydration

Nursing home residents could suffer malnutrition and dehydration because of dental problems, physical disabilities, medicinal side effects or issues with chewing. However, nursing homes should take the proper steps to try to overcome those issues and make sure residents are receiving enough food and liquids. They should do this by:

  • Having enough properly trained staff members to provide healthy food and water
  • Ensuring residents get essential vitamins, proteins, and minerals
  • Providing proper supervision during meals and snacks to make sure residents are eating and drinking
  • Assisting residents who need help with eating or drinking
  • Monitoring medication issues that could cause problems with eating or drinking
  • Spotting signs of malnutrition and dehydration and notifying a doctor
  • Monitoring dietary restrictions prescribed by doctors

Failing to take these preventative measures is a common sign of an understaffed or negligent nursing home. It could also be the result of a malicious nursing home staff member who is punishing residents by withholding food or liquids.

Whatever the reason, nursing homes that do not provide adequate care can be held liable for nursing home negligence.

If you think that your elderly loved one is suffering from malnutrition or dehydration, seek immediate medical treatment to prevent their health from declining any further. After that, contact the nursing home to investigate the situation and find out if your loved one was receiving adequate care.
