Oracle Law Firm Elder Abuse Attorneys

The most common kind of elder abuse is neglect. According to some estimates, elder abuse is caused by negligence in over 58 percent of cases. Neglect can take many forms, including physical, emotional, and financial. When a caregiver or other party purposely deprives a senior of essential products or care, such as failing to provide preventative health measures or proper cleanliness, this is known as physical neglect. Emotional neglect can isolate a senior from the rest of the world, leading to loneliness and sadness. Financial neglect is defined as the deliberate failure to use available financial resources to care for a senior, such as failing to pay for medical treatment or drugs despite having the financial means to do so. The following are some of the consequences of neglect :

  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Poor hygiene
  • Pressure ulcers/bed sores

Frequently Asked Questions

When red blood cells are damaged and metabolic acidosis is present, many individuals with electrical burns are at risk of developing hyperkalemia. Renal failure is usually the result of the patient’s condition. Hyperkalemia is a condition in which the blood potassium level is abnormally high. A severe instance, if left misdiagnosed and untreated, could result in fatal irregular cardiac rhythms (arrhythmias).

The percentage (percent) of the body that is burned is known as total body surface area (or TBSA). Clinicians utilize a method that takes into account the wounded person’s age as well as a diagram known as the Rule of Nines to assess burn size (shown below). This is the most popular method for determining the size of a burn. The assessment of the percent TBSA burn does not include first-degree burns.

At the time of the injury and during the healing period, burned regions might become infected. People with burn injuries should follow their healthcare team’s treatment guidelines to avoid infection. They should also adhere to the hospital’s infection-control policies, such as wearing gloves and gowns when necessary. Hand hygiene (clean hands) can aid in the prevention of infection. This is true for the injured individual as well as their family, friends, and carers.

First-degree burns usually take a week to ten days to recover completely. It normally takes two to three weeks for severe second-degree burns to heal completely. Scarring or discoloration can occur as a result of the healing process. Third-degree burns frequently necessitate surgery, which may include skin grafts. Multiple procedures and a long recovery time are generally required for severe third-degree burns.
