How can I watch for nursing home abuse and neglect? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Make frequent visits at unusual times when you do not normally visit. Spend time so you get to know the routine of the place. Keep a journal of visits you make to the home and write down any problems you see. Take pictures if you think your loved one has been injured or has damaged clothes or possessions. Keep a written record of any verbal complaints and keep track of dates, times and names of people you have spoken to.
