Selecting a quality nursing home for your loved one

If you have an elderly loved one who requires dedicated assistance, you may have begun looking into nursing homes in New York. While you can read reviews, interview staff members and trust your instinct, it is hard to ever know for sure just what goes on behind closed doors. Because nursing home abuse and neglect do occur around the nation, it is imperative that you spend time observing facilities to determine the level of care they provide. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP we are experienced in working with families who have loved ones in nursing home care.

According to AARP, you can find out a lot about certain facilities and how dedicated they are to patient care by simply observing some basic things. These include the following:

  • Smell: Facilities that are cleaned regularly will smell fresh. Keep in mind that you may smell unpleasant smells occasionally, but if the smell is persistent and seems to penetrate the air, it could mean the facility's sanitation is neglected.
  • Personal care: Do not hesitate to ask staff about how they handle the personal care needs of residents on a daily basis. Additionally, observe the patients around you. Do they appear healthy, clean and taken care of?
  • Staff demeanor: Pay attention to how the staff appear. Do they look tired or overworked? Do they get along well with each other? Are they responsive to resident needs? Do they facilitate answers to your questions and remain engaged with visitors?
  • Food: Pay a visit to the cafeteria and look at the kind of food being served. Does it look appealing? If your loved one has certain dietary restrictions ask what will be done to guarantee these needs are met.

These are just some of the simple things you can do to help boost your confidence about which facilities to entrust with your family member. For more information about nursing home neglect, visit our web page.
