Oklahoma City Lawyer Representing Those With Malnutrition and Dehydration Caused by Nursing Home Negligence
Dehydration and malnutrition are serious health problems among nursing home residents. Since the elderly often have reduced appetite and sense of thirst, nursing home staff need to take proactive steps to ensure that their residents obtain the food and hydration they need. Neglect can result in serious health decline or even death caused by dehydration or starvation.
At the law office of Joseph J. Reinke in Oklahoma City, our nursing home negligence attorneys represent victims of nursing home neglect. If your loved one has died or suffered serious health problems due to malnutrition or dehydration, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and your options.
An Avoidable Cause of Death or Injury in Nursing Homes
When the health of a loved one declines in a nursing home, we may think it is due to the inevitable effects of aging. People rarely suspect that their family member may be suffering from dehydration or malnutrition.
Some of the signs of malnutrition or dehydration include:
- Weight loss
- Lethargy or weakness
- Dry eyes or mouth
- Low blood pressure
- Sunken eyes
- Skin that lacks its normal elasticity
If you notice these or other health issues, discuss the issue with nursing home staff. If you are not satisfied with the response, contact our lawyers for help. When nursing homes neglect the people they are supposed to care for, our civil justice system can hold the institutions accountable.
We handle all personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, so until our attorneys win a favorable judgment or settlement in your case, you will not have to pay attorney fees.
