For elderly patients in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, sufficient fluid intake is a crucial part of their proper care. Unfortunately, this is sometimes overlooked or neglected due to improper training, overstaffing, carelessness, and other types of substandard elder care. Dehydration can cause discomfort and other immediate issues as well as long-term health problems and even permanent harm or destruction of the kidneys if it is not remedied.
If your elderly loved one is in a nursing home and you have noticed that they are exhibiting signs of potential dehydration or other types of negligence, now is the time to contact a Philadelphia nursing home neglect lawyer at Kanter, Bernstein & Kardon, P.C.
