Philadelphia Malnutrition Attorneys

Fighting Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

When you entrust your loved one to a nursing home, we know that you expect them to be cared for. It can be horrifying to learn that your senior has been suffering from a poor diet and inadequate health standards because of a careless nursing home staff.

If you suspect that your relative or friend is a victim of malnutrition, you should schedule a doctor’s appointment for him or her right away. If a physician confirms your suspicions, we suggest you call a Philadelphia nursing home abuse lawyer at Kanter, Bernstein & Kardon, P.C. to discuss your potential case.

Our phone number is (215) 259-5840 and we are available every hour, every day to take your calls. Se habla español.

Signs of Senior Malnutrition

If you suspect your loved one is suffering from malnutrition, look for these indications:

  • Rapid weight loss
  • Chills or complaints of being cold
  • Dry skin
  • Muscle loss
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Choking or swallowing problems
  • Dizziness
  • Swollen and bleeding gums or tongue sores
  • Recurrent infections
  • Difficulty recovering from illnesses

Hold Your Nursing Home to a High Standard of Care

Seniors are prone to malnutrition, but this problem should be addressed and treated quickly when discovered. Staff must ensure that their residents are getting a well-balanced diet of proteins, vitamins, and minerals.

Some patients may be confined to a liquid or puree diet, while others may only be able to eat through a feeding tube. It is still important that their diet contains the nutrients their bodies need to function properly and fight infection and illness. A poor diet can result in infections, a lowered immune system, extreme discomfort, cognitive dysfunction, and even death.
