Our Michigan nursing home neglect lawyers recently added a Library article to our website on cases involving malnourishment and dehydration. This is a serious issue with many nursing home residents. Many are frail and weak in the first place, and the failure to properly nourish and hydrate these patients can cause serious medical problems and even death. It is important that family members of residents look for signs of malnourishment and neglect, like rapid weight loss, weakness, and dried lips, and bring this to the attention of the staff immediately so that proper measures can be taken. Patients who do suffer these conditions may have the right to file a Michigan nursing home negligence lawsuit.
