Questions to ask when trying to find the right nursing home

Posted on November 30, 2014 1:00 pm under Nursing Home Abuse

Elder abuse in nursing homes takes many forms – verbal, physical, sexual, and emotional. Unfortunately, abusive acts by nursing home staff members may result in other complications that could aggravate residents’ health conditions.

As such, it is important for you to choose the long term care facility that would diligently look after your loved one’s needs. Here are questions that may help you assess whether or not a home is right for your loved ones:

  • Does the home meet all the federally mandated licenses and permits?
  • Does the home perform well in assessments and evaluations?
  • Is the nursing home clear of any record of nursing home abuse and neglect?
  • Is the staff cheerful and approachable?
  • Is the overall ambiance inviting? Do the residents look happy?

If you answer yes to all of these questions, chances are you might be choosing the right nursing home for your elderly. Even if you believe you have chosen the most appropriate nursing home for your loved one, it is possible that he or she may still be subjected to negligence and abuse.
