Bruises & Bleeding in Nursing Homes

Call the Law Office of Marshall Silberberg if Your Elderly Loved One was Abused in a Nursing Home in Orange County

In many cases of nursing home abuse or elder abuse, signs of harm might be difficult to notice. Bruises and bleeding are somewhat common but largely remain unexplained. Although it might be easy to think bruises are caused by mild, day-to-day accidents, the truth is nursing home abuse could likely be the actual explanation.

If you suspect your elderly loved one who is being abused in a nursing home, and that their bruised or bloodied sores are the proof, then get the Law Office of Marshall Silberberg on your side right away*. With the help and guidance of our firm, you can remove your loved one from a dangerous situation, protect them from further harm, and seek compensation from wrongdoers.

(* If you believe your elderly loved one is in immediate danger of physical harm, then it may be necessary to call the authorities to help remove them from the abusive nursing home and dangerous situation. Please never do anything that jeopardizes the safety of yourself and that of your loved ones.)

Causes of Unexplained Bruises & Bleeding

Nursing home abuse is such a dire problem in that it is difficult to track, report, and stop. Elders who are subjected to physical, mental, and other forms of abuse are often afraid to speak up. Some may be incapacitated to the point where they have no way to tell of the abuse, or they cannot remember it clearly. If you notice your senior loved one has unexplained bruises and bleeding, as well as serious bedsores, you should be aware of potential, unaccepted causes.

Bruises and bleeding suffered by an elder in an assisted living facility could be caused by:

  • Physical abuse: An elder in a poorly-managed nursing home may be subjected to physical abuse like striking, slapping, or pushing, carried out either by caretakers or other residents. In such situations, the elder may exhibit signs of fear around a particular person, who may be assumed to be the abuser.
  • Slips and falls: A nursing home that is neglectful in its duty to care for elders will likely have an unacceptable resident-to-caretaker ratio. The risk of an elder trying to move throughout the facility on their own, perhaps to use the restroom, and falling will be heightened.
  • Malnutrition: Elders who are not given proper nutrition will suffer a variety of health consequences because of it, including a higher risk to bruise or bleed from minor injuries.
