San Antonio Nursing Home Malnutrition Attorney

Ending Resident Nutrition Neglect

Bodies need fuel to operate properly. Just like cars don't work without gas or fuel, when a body is chronically malnourished or dehydrated, it cannot survive. Unfortunately, because some people who are in nursing homes can't feed themselves, malnutrition and dehydration are increasing problems in nursing homes.

If your loved one is suffering because he or she cannot nourish him or herself, it is important to work with an experienced San Antonio nursing home malnutrition lawyer who can hold the nursing home accountable for their negligence. At the Law Offices of Glenn W. Cunningham, we aggressively pursue justice on behalf of victims of nursing home abuse and neglect. We have 20 years of experience handling personal injury matters, and we can help you receive the compensation you need.

Identifying the Cause of Malnutrition and Dehydration

Because some people in nursing homes cannot feed themselves, they must rely on the nursing home staff to provide the nutrients they need. However, because nursing homes are continually trying to improve their financial bottom line, they are frequently understaffed. When there are not enough staff to care for the patients, they do not receive the nourishment they need.

Although that seems straightforward, it can be difficult to determine what constitutes "enough" staff. As seniors age, they often become more vulnerable and dependent on those around them. In the same way that children at daycare centers must rely on their caretakers for everything, nursing home residents must rely on their caretakers to nourish them. And while daycare centers have strict regulations governing the appropriate staff-to-child ratio, there is no comparable standard for nursing homes. As a result, nursing home residents are often left without enough people to properly care for them.
