Iowa Malnutrition Lawyers

When you make the decision that a loved one needs nursing home care, you may be shown only the best side of what goes on inside the facility you choose. While there are many well-run, safe nursing homes throughout Iowa, we know from experience that thorough investigation sometimes confirms suspected elder abuse and neglect.

Des Moines Dehydration Attorneys: Is Your Family Member Suffering Because of Nursing Home Negligence?

Nutrition cannot be taken for granted when it comes to nursing home residents. Many need personal attention and daily monitoring to ensure they eat properly and get enough fluids. The food budget — along with staffing — are often the subject of cost-saving efforts at nursing homes. If you have seen evidence of malnutrition or dehydration, action may be required to protect your loved one and others.

Exposing a Serious Problem With Serious Consequences

Malnutrition and dehydration are very harmful for anyone, but especially for the elderly, increasing their risk for bedsores, serious infections, broken bones, pneumonia and other serious conditions. If surgery is ever needed, survival chances may be reduced.
