What is Nursing Home Neglect?

Neglect is defined as the failure to meet basic needs of a dependent party. These needs can include proper nutrition, hygiene, and appropriate medical care. Signs of ongoing neglect can include bed sores, dehydration, and malnutrition. Residents who are sedentary need to be regularly moved in order to avoid damage to tissue. Sitting or laying in the same position for an extended period of time can result in bed sores (also called pressure sores) and persistent infection, which can become a life-threatening condition.
