It's no secret that eating healthy, balanced meals keeps the body in peak condition. Healthy eating habits fend off illness, fatigue and the decline in health, mobility and more. While many people are able to make their own intelligent choices about what they eat, when they eat, and even when they drink fluids, elderly residents of nursing homes must instead rely on facility staff to make these decisions for them and monitor their quality of health.
In many cases, nursing home residents suffer from physical and mental illnesses that prohibit them from expressing their basic needs for food and water. In cases of malnutrition at nursing homes, staff is often poorly managed, incompetent or negligent which can result in dependent elderly residents receiving improper nutrition.
Failing to provide proper nutrition to patients is a form of elder abuse and neglect. Call (909) 345-8110 to discuss your case in a free consultation with McCune Wright Arevalo!
