Houston Nursing Home Malnutrition Attorneys
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.

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:
- 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.
