Our Attorneys Fight Against Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect

As with anyone, malnutrition and dehydration can lead to serious health problems and even wrongful death. Without proper nutrition and regular fluids, nursing home residents are in danger of developing:

  • Pressure sores and other skin diseases
  • Overall weakness or faintness
  • Weakened immune systems

  • Mental fatigue, confusion and dizziness
  • Dementia
  • Organ failure
  • Other catastrophic injuries

Moreover, some elderly nursing home residents require specialized diets to accommodate unique health conditions or medication. It is the responsibility of all nursing home personnel — including kitchen workers — to know the dietary needs of their patients. We stand up to elder abuse and negligence on behalf of families throughout Massachusetts, taking decisive action to achieve justice for our clients.
