Nursing Home Neglect Due to Malnutrition and Dehydration
Nursing Home Neglect | Malnutrition or Dehydration | Failure to Monitor
For a variety of reasons, the residents in a nursing home facility may not get the nutrition or fluids they need to maximize their health. Many simply forget to eat or drink. Others have dental or physical problems that make it difficult for them to chew or swallow. As a result, nursing home caregivers need to pay close attention to ensure good diet and hydration. Unfortunately, with the staff shortages and poor training prevalent in many nursing homes, far too many seniors suffer from poor diets or dehydration. We can help.
At Sackstein Sackstein & Lee, LLP, we have fought for the rights of injured people in New York City and Long Island since 1952. We know that a personal injury can be life-changing. For more than six decades, we have maintained a strong commitment to use our considerable skill, knowledge, experience and resources to help injured people get full and fair compensation for their injuries. We know that your circumstances are unique, and will take the time to learn the details of your case, so that we can tailor our representation to get the outcome you want.

- Failure to ensure that food and beverages are actually consumed
- Failure to monitor residents for signs of malnutrition or dehydration
- Failure to follow dietary restrictions prescribed by a resident’s doctor
- Failure to monitor medications to determine whether they are likely to suppress appetite or affect hydration
We handle all issues related to nursing home negligence claims, working closely with you to gather, evaluate and preserve all critical evidence. We will prepare and file all documents and pleadings required by the court, and will be your advocate in all hearings and proceedings.
