Handling Complex Cases With Unparalleled Expertise
Nursing homes are supposed to be places of comfort, care, and support—yet they so often are quite the opposite. While there are many caregivers who treat their patients with love and care, elderly patients are often mistreated or abused. These occurrences happen more often than you may believe, and they often go undocumented as many patients are hesitant to speak up as they fear being retaliated against.
Signs of Dehydration
Dehydration is one of the most common forms of neglect or abuse, as it is nearly untraceable until it is too late. It is particularly dangerous in the elderly, as it can lead to a number of adverse medical conditions, such as kidney failure, brain swelling, confusion, seizures, a coma, or death.
The following are signs of dehydration:
- Dryness of skin or mouth
- Cramping or muscle contractions
- Urinary infection
- Sleepiness or irritability
- Low blood pressure
- Heavy and fast breathing
- Bloated stomach
- Rapid but weak pulse
- Wrinkled skin
- Dry and sunken eyes, unable to produce tears
Proper and regular hydration is essential in keeping one healthy and strong, especially in old age. If you or a loved one has not been appropriately hydrated due to neglect or abuse, we at Rourke & Blumenthal intend to hold the person in charge of your wellbeing responsible for their dangerous actions.
