If you have not decided on a Clarksville nursing home for your loved one yet, it is recommended that you visit each home that you are considering. While you are there, you should talk to the staff about their policies, nutritional plans, how medication is handled and what the staff are told to do in an emergency. It is also recommended that you take note of how the patients seem. Are they well care for and seem happy or are they by themselves and seem to need help or be in pain? These are the kinds of things it is important to be aware of before deciding which nursing home you should choose.
After you have placed your loved one in a home, you should go see them as often as you can. This way you can make sure they are doing well. You can take note of any bruises, cuts, scrapes, dirty clothes or unusual behavior of your loved one. If you become aware of these kinds of things, you should tell the nursing home immediately as these are signs of abuse or neglect. If the nursing home fails to do anything, you can contact the Tennessee Department of Health about the situation to have them investigate.
