Milwaukee Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer Tips
Recognizing the Warning Signs of Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
People entrust their loved ones to nursing homes with the hope that they will be kept safe and will be well cared for by staff members and administrators. Unfortunately, neglect and abuse do occur in nursing homes and elder care facilities throughout Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Learning how to recognize the signs of neglect and abuse can help save the person you love and allow you to pursue compensation from those who are responsible.
Every resident deserves the highest standard of care. At Domnitz & Domnitz, S.C., we believe that those who neglect or abuse residents of nursing home facilities, as well as the facilities that allow that type of treatment to take place, deserve to be held accountable. For more than 55 combined years, we have represented the victims of substandard nursing home treatment and will employ our resources and experience to fight for a successful outcome.

Nursing home abuse may include neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse or mental/emotional abuse. Signs of neglect may include:
- Malnutrition and weight loss
- Dirty bedding
- Poor hygiene
- Bedsores and infections
- Unexplained bruises or injuries
Unfortunately, physical abuse is all too common, and victims are often afraid or are unable to complain. Neglect and abuse can exacerbate some of the natural effects of aging. Any unexplained injuries or behaviors should be addressed. Emotional and mental abuse can be the most difficult to spot, but are no less dangerous, and may involve erratic behavior, confusion, agitation or depression.
