Nursing home abuse and neglect occur all too often. However, it is preventable. Many nursing homes fail to provide adequate training and do not have enough employees for each resident. This leads to more claims of abuse and neglect. When you begin looking for a nursing home in Shelby County, you should visit each home that you are thinking about and ask them plenty of questions about their training procedures, emegerency policies, medication policies, when the residents eat, the number of employees they have and more. You should also pay close attention to how the residents that already live there seem. For example, if the residents appear to be alone or their clothes are dirty, then nursing home abuse and neglect may be occuring in that home. If the residents seem happy, are participating in actvities or are well looked after by the employees, that nursing home may be worth considering.

Once you decide on which nursing home is the right one for your family member or friend, you should continue to visit them as much as possible. This way you can check out the conditions of the nursing home and make sure they are still doing what they should. You can also talk to or look over your relative or friend and make sure they do not have any signs of abuse or neglect such as any cuts, bruising, soiled clothes, malnurtion, dehydration, being isolated from other residents and more. If you notice any of these signs, you need to speak to the nursing home about the problem right away. If they do not adequate address the issue you can speak with someone at the Tennessee Department of Health so that they can look into your claims.
