Dehydration or Malnutrition Should Not Occur In a Nursing Home

Many nursing homes fail to keep patients properly fed and hydrated. Most commonly, this is because the patients cannot feed themselves any longer and the nursing home staff does not take the time to assist them. If your loved one is suffering from dehydration or malnutrition while living at a nursing home, you need to speak with a Houston attorney with experience in medical malpractice cases.

Tommy Hastings of Hastings Law Firm has more than a decade of experience helping victims of medical negligence obtain compensation for the harm done to them. He has a long track record of success, as well as the respect of the legal community and the opposition. The verdicts and settlements he has achieved have won millions of dollars to help his clients cover medical bills and other costs associated with their injuries.

We all know how hard it is to see an elderly family member mistreated. Everyone at our law firm cares about what happens to your loved one. This relaxed, friendly attitude helps us think differently about you, your family member and your case. Having that personal relationship makes us more invested in obtaining a successful outcome.

Understanding How Your Loved One Was Harmed

Many older people in nursing homes become nonresponsive. They are no longer able to feed themselves or drink on their own. Nursing home staff may put food and drink down in front of them but not sit down to feed them, ensuring that they get something into their stomachs. Because of their age and other health problems, malnutrition and dehydration can set in very quickly.

Common Side Effects of Nursing Home Malnutrition Include:

  • Infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Propensity for bedsores

Frequently, the nursing home administrators may push your complaints aside with excuses like, “this isn’t uncommon at this age.” You need to stand up for your family member’s rights. Our lawyers will help you hold the nursing home accountable and obtain compensation for the harm done to your loved one.

Fantastic law firm! Getting our negligence case settled took longer than originally expected but in the end the results were well worth it. Mr. Hastings and his office were always professional, polite, and thorough in explaining my case to me. Bug thanks to him and his staff for helping me through this ordeal.

Gus Morton

We couldn’t have made a better choice by hiring the Hastings Law Firm to represent us. The staff was always professional but they showed real concern for our case and made it personal. If you need a great law firm, I would happily recommend them.

Ernie Wolford

Tommy is a great guy, genuinely concerned about his clients. This is evident in not only how he runs his firm but the fact that he chose to focus on medmal, something other attorneys have abandoned. If you’re looking for someone that will fight for you tooth and nail, he’s your man.


Tommy Hastings and his staff provided a much needed voice for us during our crisis. His attention to detail went beyond the scope of simply practicing law. He is honest, informative, pragmatic and communicated well with us from start to finish. In a sea full of competing attorneys, Tommy has cast a reputation for himself as the very best. I highly recommend his services.

Kellie Rhodes

Tommy Hastings went above and beyond during my crisis. He genuinely cares about his clients and delivered a straight-forward, honest method to resolve my issue as quick as possible. If you want the best of the best then look no further. You’ve found him.

Kendall Webb

I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued, my nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Tommy Hastings and his staff go above and beyond! I couldn’t have asked for a better law firm or attorney!

Joy Love

I can’t say enough great things about this law firm. The staff was friendly and courteous every step of the way. They kept me informed and explained all of my options. Tommy was amazing to work with and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my outcome. If I could give him 10 stars, I would. If you don’t go with Hastings, you are doing yourself a disservice. Highly recommend.

Misty Peterson

I would highly recommend Tommy and his law firm. He represented us in a case where a simple surgery left my mother permanently disabled. His staff was very professional and diligent and kept me well informed throughout the case. In the end we are happy with the settlement she received and feel lucky to have had Tommy as our attorney.

Earica Robert

My brother had an unnecessary surgery which left him with severe neurological issues. We called several attorneys but chose Hastings because of their focus on cases like this. While the case is still pending, we’ve already received a settlement offer that was very close to what we were looking for. Many thanks go out to Tommy and his great team!

Devin Schumacher

We’re blessed to have found the Hastings law firm. Tommy and Greg were outstanding! Both attorneys were very responsive, professional, and helpful with any questions we had about our case. Their entire staff went above and beyond to keep us updated and most of all, calm. My family feels as though we have been made (mostly) whole again. Thank you both for your hard work.
