Pompano Beach Physical Neglect

Unfortunately, the trust that families place in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and other long-term care facilities is sometimes misplaced. Even if you research nursing homes and other care options carefully, residents of these facilities can become victims of nursing home abuse and neglect in Pompano Beach or their communities. One common form of neglect and abuse involves physical neglect. This can mean that staff do not provide the basic essentials of life, such as human interaction, basic grooming, proper food and nutrition, and more.

If a loved one has been victimized in this way, do not hesitate to contact Flaxman Law Group. Physical neglect, if not addressed immediately, can lead to serious medical complications and issues. Over the phone or in a free, no obligation case consultation, the attorneys of Flaxman Law Group can help you understand what your options are and what your next steps might be to protect your loved one.

Physical Neglect in Pompano Beach and Florida is a Form of Abuse

Medical neglect can lead to serious medical complications and other forms of neglect can lead to slip and fall accidents in nursing homes as well as other serious consequences. Physical neglect, however, is so serious that it is considered a form of abuse. In its most extreme forms, physical neglect can be fatal.

Physical neglect can involve failing to provide:

  • Human interaction
  • Heating or cooling
  • Movement or physical exercise
  • Assistance for a bed-ridden patient who needs to be turned over or needs to use the bathroom
  • Supervision and monitoring
  • Food
  • Water
  • Medication or medical services
  • Assistance with physical hygiene

Many healthy adults take it for granted that they can get a glass of water when they are thirsty or a sweater if they are cold. For children and some vulnerable adults in care, however, these simple tasks can be a big obstacle. A small child may not be able to feed themselves and someone who is bedridden in an assisted living facility may need assistance in getting dressed or using the bathroom. When these individuals do not get the basics they need, they could suffer from dehydration, malnutrition, medical complications, falls, infections, and other serious injury.
