Symptoms of Dehydration

When the body does not take in as much liquid as it is losing, the resulting condition is called dehydration. Dehydration should be easily recognized by medical professionals due to its clear symptoms. These symptoms may include:

  • Loss of energy
  • Mental confusion
  • Dizziness
  • Low blood pressure
  • Lack of tears
  • Varying body temperature

The carelessness of a nursing home staff member who fails to recognize and treat these symptoms can cause other harmful physical and mental conditions.

As a loved one of an individual in a nursing home community, it is important to be aware that abuse is an all too common occurrence. Many residents of these homes have been physically or emotionally harmed due to the negligence of nursing home staff. If you have noticed any of these symptoms in your loved one, it is important that you speak with a nursing home liability attorney today.
