Nursing home and assisted living facility residents may get dehydrated or malnourished for many reasons.

To prevent these conditions, nursing homes and assisted living facilities need to understand residents’ unique nutritional needs and have procedures in place for how to address residents that are unable to express those needs themselves. If these needs are not met, the resident can suffer from dehydration or become malnourished which may result in damage to organs, tissues, cell failure, or other dangerous complications to the residents’ health.

If you or a loved one has been harmed as a result of dehydration or malnutrition, the nursing home or assisted living facility may be held accountable. Our attorneys have specific experience representing victims and families who have been harmed by dehydration and malnutrition. If you would like to discuss your case or want more information, please contact our offices for a confidential consultation.
