Malnutrition

Nursing home negligence is, unfortunately, a particular problem found in many nursing home facilities all over the U.S. While this negligence can take many different forms, one of the most pervasive is malnutrition, which is extremely hard to detect, especially initially. However, malnutrition can be extremely threatening to the overall health and safety of residents, as being deprived of essential nutrients can cause serious physical problems.

Effects of Malnutrition

Malnutrition refers to a condition in which a person does not receive the appropriate type or amount of nutrients that he or she needs to remain healthy. This condition can have numerous negative effects, such as:

  • Dehydration
  • Weight loss or gain
  • Exacerbation of another physical condition
  • Sallow skin
  • Loss of appetite
  • Emotional distress

Any resident who suffers from malnutrition could react in different ways and may suffer from these or other side effects as a result of this dangerous condition. However, these symptoms of malnutrition may take a long time to manifest, especially if the malnutrition is occurring slowly over time.
