Miramar Physical Neglect
Physical neglect can be a form of nursing home or assisted living negligence in Miramar or your community. This type of abuse occurs when someone who is in care or in a vulnerable position is neglected by their caregivers. This form of abuse involves not providing the necessities of life. It can involve a parent not feeding their child adequately, for example. In an assisted living facility or nursing home, it can mean that a resident is not washed adequately or not provided with adequate heating or clothing. This type of abuse can lead to serious injury and even fatalities.

Physical neglect is a serious issue because it tends to affect those who are most vulnerable. An active adult in Florida can feed themselves or can get something to drink. They can turn up the heat if they are cold, bathe themselves, or choose clothing that is adequate for the weather. In fact, many of us take it for granted that we are able to provide ourselves with basic physical needs.
For children and vulnerable adults in care, however, even something as simple as eating a meal or getting something to drink can be difficult. These individuals rely on carers or facilities to provide them with the basics of life and when physical neglect or other serious abuse occurs, vulnerable adults and children may have few options for securing necessities or even reporting that abuse has taken place. In these cases, it can be important for friends and family to step in and offer protection and assistance.Physical Neglect Leads to Devastating Injury
Physical neglect can and does lead to serious injuries, including:
- Malnutrition and starvation
- Weight loss
- Infestations of lice and other pests
- Poor physical hygiene
- Bed sores
