Elderly Dehydration Lawyers

Senior Care Neglect and Lack of Adequate Hydration

In 2012 around 2313 cases of elderly dehydration were reported in the USA. A healthy body only functions well if it has the adequate amount of fluid, and our bodies lose kidney function as we age, reducing the amount of liquid we conserve. In cases of illness, where vomiting and diarrhea are experienced, dehydration can happen very quickly and have less water in the body may result in serious illnesses. Proper levels of fluids in the body maintain blood pressure, body temperature and regularize the waste movement from the body. In combination with the lack of fluid intake, dehydration is common with due to prescriptions of high blood pressure or antidepressant medication. The improper care of a patient by a caregiver or nurse and unmanaged diet high in diuretics like coffee, tea and alcohol create a high-risk situation and may be a case for our elderly dehydration lawyers to handle.

Elderly dehydration can result in:

  • Severe urine infections
  • Weakness
  • Pneumonia
  • Confusion
  • Bed sores in bedridden patients
  • Even Death

What Are Your Rights When A Loved One Suffers From Elderly Dehydration

To help in preventing dehydration in the elderly, proper management of diet and medication is needed and a caregiver, physician or nurse is responsible for monitoring hydration while under their care. If an elderly person is showing some common physical signs, they may be suffering from dehydration and it is important to hold the responsible party liable.

Dehydration Symptoms in Elderly include;

  • Low blood pressure
  • Sunken Eyes

  • Depression
  • Darker urine
  • Thirsty mouth
