Nursing homes often have problems of neglect or abuse because their limited staff is overworked or improperly trained to handle certain situations. If you are thinking about a Murfreesboro nursing home for someone you love, then it is a good idea to talk with the nursing home about their training procedures, as well as to ask how medication is kept track of and given and how the nursing home handles any emergencies that may occur. It is also important to check out how the residents seem when you visit, notice if they seem happy and well cared for or if they are asking for help and being ignored. Also, it is important to pay attention to how many staff they have per each resident.
If an elderly loved one is already staying in a Murfreesboro nursing home, the best thing you can do is to visit them often and during different times. This will help you notice any signs of abuse or neglect. If you see signs such as cuts, bruises, sores, scrapes, scratches, or if your loved one seems worried, agitated or unusually quiet, these may all be signs of abuse or neglect. You should speak to the nursing home administration about your concerns. If this does not seem to help you can contact the Tennessee Department of Health about the issue so that they may investigate.
