Warning Signs of Abuse in South Carolina Nursing Homes
In many cases, it is a family member who alerts authorities to nursing home abuse. Particularly if staff members are causing the abuse, infirm or scared nursing home residents may depend on someone from outside to recognize their need for help.
Anyone who visits a nursing home resident should know the warning signs of abuse and neglect. If you suspect abuse, report it to management. If you are not completely satisfied with the response, you should alert police and contact an experienced nursing home abuse attorney. If it is an emergency, call 911.
