North Miami Physical Neglect

Unfortunately, elderly patients in nursing homes and adults in care homes or assisted living facilities can become targets of abuse and neglect in North Miami and other Florida communities. Poor policies and abusive or negligent staff can mean that patients and residents end up without the basics of life or end up with serious injuries. In cases of physical neglect, for example, patients may not get water, food, help with hygiene, heating, or other basics. This type of abuse can lead to weight loss, dehydration, hypothermia, falls, and even fatalities. Unfortunately, those who are most likely to be affected by physical neglect are also those who are most vulnerable and those least likely to be able to fight back. In these cases, it is often caring family members and friends who step in to provide justice and assistance.

Physical Neglect Can Lead to Serious Injuries

Nursing home physical abuse and neglect can lead to many conditions and afflictions, such as:

  • Dehydration
  • Bedsores
  • Malnutrition
  • Fractures
  • Physical abuse
  • Medical neglect
  • Infections
  • Head injuries or back injuries
  • Lice or other infestations

The reality is that people who are placed in care environments often require more assistance than the average population in order to handle basic tasks such as eating or grooming. If someone is neglectful in taking care of the physical aspect of residents, residents and patients can face serious consequences due to a lack of care and help. Even something as simple as bed sores caused by lack of proper grooming or caused by lack of properly turning someone who is bedridden can lead to infections and can even be life-threatening to someone who has a pre-existing condition.
