Malnutrition

Nursing homes are obligated to ensure that their residents are adequately fed and hydrated. Yet Malnutrition and dehydration in nursing homes can happen due to staff inattention to individual needs, or staff neglect or even falsification of records and charting that are required to document how much residents are eating and drinking.  When our lawyers handle malnutrition and dehydration cases, we talk to current and former nursing home staff, examine records and work with investigators to examine the facts behind the documents and prepare compelling cases that hold nursing homes accountable for their actions.
