The Effects of Malnutrition
Proper nutrition is necessary to ensure good health and quality of life. Nursing home residents are often unable to feed themselves or communicate their hunger to others, leaving them to suffer in silence when staff members do not provide adequate nutrition. State and federal regulations require nursing homes to ensure residents receive adequate vitamins, minerals, protein, and calories according to their nutritional needs. All too often, they fail to meet this requirement.
Nutritional deficiencies can lead to a wide range of medical problems, including:
- Muscle weakness
- Weakened immune system
- Bone loss
If your loved one has suffered due to malnutrition in a nursing home, it is important to determine the cause of the problem. Malnutrition could be the result of illness, swallowing disorders, depression, tooth loss and a wide range of other problems. The Finz firm's experienced nursing home negligence attorneys know how to uncover the facts in these cases to determine causation and liability.
