Dehydration Malnutrition

Dehydration/Malnutrition Lawyers in Charleston

Representation for Victims of Neglect in Nursing Homes

It’s hard to imagine that a person in a nursing home could suffer from malnutrition or dehydration. Unfortunately, it happens more often than people would like to believe. Dehydration is one of the most frequent causes of hospitalization for the elderly. Malnutrition robs many nursing home residents of their health and enjoyment of life.

At Warner Law Offices, PLLC, our attorneys represent people injured by nursing home negligence and abuse. If your loved one suffers from dehydration or malnutrition, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. They may be entitled to compensation from the nursing home.

As people age, their appetite may diminish. They may also have a reduced sense of thirst. As a result, the elderly can suffer from malnutrition or dehydration even in an environment where there is plenty of food and liquids.

A number of requirements apply to nursing homes. One of those requirements is to meet the nutritional needs of residents. If necessary, to ensure adequate hydration and nutrition, nursing homes are required to help residents eat and drink.

Signs of malnutrition may include:

  • Weight loss
  • Decline in health
  • Dizziness and weakness

Signs of dehydration may include:

  • Dry mouth or skin
  • Low blood pressure
  • Weakness or dizziness
  • Frequent hospitalization

If a nursing home fails in its duty to care for residents, the civil justice system may provide a remedy.
