Malnutrition is a dangerous illness that can affect people of all ages. However, many of the effects of an unbalanced diet can intensify with age. As a resident of a nursing home, you are entitled to the foods needed to prevent avoidable malnutrition.

Nursing homes frequently fail to provide the basic nutrients needed for an aging person’s body to remain healthy. As lawyers experienced in personal injury cases, we will help you understand the legal aspects involved in nursing home abuse. Please contact the Des Moines personal injury attorneys at LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at (515) 705-0233 for more information.

Dangers of Malnutrition

Malnutrition is an easily avoidable illness in nursing homes. Medical experts have laid out every vitamin needed to stay in good health. Unfortunately missing just one vitamin regularly can result in malnutrition. Nursing home employees are aware of these needs and are responsible for the care of their residents

If untreated, malnutrition can lead to many serious illnesses. Chronic fatigue, lack of strength, weakness, heart problems, skin problems, anemia, and depression are just some of the potentially serious ailments associated with malnutrition.

There are currently 1.6 million people living in nursing homes nationwide. With high costs to the residents, it is important that nursing home workers make sure that all residents receive the care they need.
