Nursing Home Malnutrition

Federal and state regulations mandate that nursing homes provide adequate nutrition to their residents, including ample vitamins, minerals, protein and calories. When nursing homes fail to fulfill this obligation, residents can suffer serious medical conditions such as infections, cognitive disorders and bedsores. Advanced cases can even result in wrongful death.

A number of factors may contribute to malnutrition in nursing homes, including residents not being able to feed themselves. Nursing home staff members must be adequately trained to understand the dietary needs of elderly residents and how to provide adequate nutrition even when the resident is not able to cooperate in his or her own feeding.

Nursing Home Dehydration

We take for granted that when we are thirsty, we get a sip of water. However, it is not so easy for many nursing home residents. Many elderly people are unable to express their needs and lack of mobility leaves them unable to properly hydrate themselves. This is why it is crucial for nursing home staff members to routinely provide water to all residents.

Proper hydration is necessary to keep all organs functioning properly. When nursing home residents do not get enough water, they can suffer from pneumonia, urinary tract infections, confusion, bedsores and dangerous electrolyte imbalances. It is the responsibility of the nursing home to provide adequate hydration and to train staff members to recognize and treat the signs of dehydration.
