Attorneys Holding Nursing Homes Liable For Resident Malnutrition
Simply put: Malnutrition and dehydration should not happen in a nursing home setting. Nursing homes and assisted living facilities have the tools necessary to provide residents with nutrition and hydration. When they fail to do so, it is a matter of neglect.
Malnutrition and dehydration cause a wide range of harms. These include low blood sugar, muscle weakness, dizziness and repeated falls. Malnutrition and dehydration are also linked to decreased immunity, leaving the elder person susceptible to infections. They can be fatal.
