It’s no secret that eating healthy, balanced meals keep the body in peak condition. Keeping healthy eating habits fends off illness, fatigue, decline in health, mobility and more. While many people are able to make their own intelligent choices about what they eat, when they eat, and even when they drink fluids, elderly residents of nursing homes must instead rely on facility staff to make these decisions for them, and monitor their quality of health. In many cases, nursing home residents suffer from physical and mental illnesses that prohibit them from expressing their basic needs for food and water. In cases of nursing home incompetence, staff is poorly managed, incompetent or negligent which can result in dependent elderly residents receiving improper nutrition. If you or a loved one has been a victim of improper nutrition, speak with a Riverside nursing home abuse lawyer who can represent you. Failing to provide proper nutrition to patients is a form of elder abuse and negligence.
Suffering through improper nutrition at the hands of inattentive, incompetent or neglectful nursing home staff is a nightmare that no elderly nursing home resident should be forced to live through. Since 1975, Riverside medical malpractice attorney Steven J. Weinberg has fought successfully for victims of improper nutrition malpractice nursing homes, and can build a strong case to maximize the amount of financial compensation received in cases of injury, pain and suffering, or even death. Cases of improper nutrition malpractice can also have a positive impact on nursing home facilities by exposing lack of qualified staff, lack of supervision, or cases of extreme, unlawful negligence by these facilities.
Contact a Riverside improper nursing home abuse lawyer if you or a loved one has received improper nutrition in a nursing home resulting in physical or mental damages that require compensation.
