Elderly Abuse: Dehydration

Los Angeles Elder Abuse Attorney

It is common knowledge that water is among the most basic of human needs. Without proper hydration, our bodies shut down and can no longer properly function. When you leave your loved one in nursing home care, it is a reasonable expectation that they will receive the care that they need and have, at the very least, their basic human needs met.

Has your loved one suffered dehydration while in a nursing home?

Unfortunately, many patients suffer from dehydration, and this can be extremely dangerous, especially on the frail body of an elderly individual. If your elderly loved one has suffered dehydration while in nursing home care, contact a Los Angeles elder abuse attorney from our firm today to discuss your options and find out what steps you can take to fight back against those responsible.

Our experienced and compassionate attorneys can help you understand what your legal rights and options are, and get started on your claim. Dehydration can lead to serious medical maladies and emergencies, especially in an older patient. Symptoms of dehydration can include lethargy or coma, low blood pressure, rapid heart rate, lightheadedness, dizziness and c onfusion. Prolonged and severe dehydration can lead to the following complications:

  • Seizures
  • Permanent brain damage
  • Death
