Albany Nursing Home Malnutrition Lawyers

Troy Nursing Home Dehydration Attorneys

Adequate food and water are among the most basic human needs. They are also among the basic responsibilities that nursing homes owe to their residents. When facilities and their employees neglect these responsibilities, they can be held accountable for the results.

At the law firm of Law offices of Sanford Rosenblum, my Albany nursing home malnutrition attorneys are dedicated to pursuing the maximum available money damages from nursing homes that neglect their residents’ most critical needs.

Understanding the Causes of Malnutrition and Dehydration

Nursing homes are responsible for making sure their residents receive a sufficient supply of key nutrients, including calories, vitamins, minerals and water. Malnutrition and dehydration in nursing homes have a number of different major causes, including the following:

  • Inadequate assistance for residents who have trouble eating on their own
  • Failure to identify and treat illnesses that affect absorption of nutrients
  • Inadequate menus and dietary supplements

Because malnutrition and dehydration are such widespread problems in nursing homes, facilities are expected to track their residents’ intake and output in order to make sure they are getting enough nutrition. When they fail to do so, residents can suffer serious harm.
