Experienced Trial Attorneys Fighting for the Injured
Malnutrition & Dehydration

Savannah Malnutrition & Dehydration Attorneys

Outstanding Legal Representation in Elder Abuse Cases in Georgia

Nursing home abuse is often seen as intentional acts of harm committed against aged victims who cannot take care of themselves. Malnutrition and dehydration are very often never considered under the categories of neglect or abuse. Yet malnutrition and dehydration are common problems for the elderly in nursing homes. These individuals are often physically unable to get to drinks or food provided for them or they are unable to voice their thirst or hunger.

If you believe your loved one has suffered malnutrition or dehydration in a nursing home environment, you should take action against the management of the facility. If you are not satisfied with how the matter is handled, you can turn to a Savannah nursing home lawyer at Tate Law Group, LLC for help. Our top-rated firm has achieved many outstanding case results for nursing home abuse victims and their families through tough and appropriate legal claims.

Causes of Dehydration & Malnutrition in Nursing Homes

Dehydration is one of the most common forms of neglect caused by nursing home attendants forgetting or refusing to provide enough fluids for those in their care. When these residents become dehydrated, they can become victims of rapid weight loss which can lead to further complications.

Dehydration can be caused by:

  • Illness
  • Medication side effects
  • Lack of adequate fluids

Once a resident becomes dehydrated, other problems can ensue, such as bedsores, ulcers, immune system decline, mental confusion, the advance of dementia, mineral imbalances, and a higher risk for infection.

Malnutrition is caused by improper nutritional intake which can occur in the elderly due to being unable to feed themselves, loss of appetite (common in the elderly), dental problems, depression, and the presentation of cold, tasteless, and otherwise unappetizing meals. Malnutrition can lead to both worsened physical and mental decline, advanced fatigue, higher risk for infection, and more.
