If you are thinking about placing your loved one in one of these nursing homes or any other nursing home, the first thing you should do is to visit each of the homes and check them out. It is important to make a note of how the nursing home looks and smells to help you determine the care being provided. It is also important to pay attention to whether or not residents are being attended to or whether they seem to be calling for help or be in pain. Then, it is recommended to talk with the nursing home about their training methods, when and where the residents eat, how medication is handled, how many staff are there for each floor or each resident. If you are able to get answers to these questions and concerns, it will help you to choose the nursing home that is right for your loved one.
Once you choose a nursing home, it is a good idea to visit your loved one as often as possible and at different times of the day. This way you can notice how staff are taking care of not only your loved one but the other residents as well. You can also talk with or sit with your loved one and take note of any physical abuse such as bruises, cuts,sores, or scrapes. It is also a good time to notice any other signs of abuse or neglect such as if your loved one seems withdrawn or unusually worried or upset. If you notice any of these things, you should speak to the nursing home and see if they can address your concerns. If this does not solve the problem, you can speak to someone with the Tennessee Department of Health.
