Patient malnutrition an extreme form of nursing home neglect in Arizona
Nursing homes in Arizona that fail to feed people enough food put patients at extreme risk. The less food people get in a nursing home, the more likely they are to develop serious health problems. The quality of the food is also equally important. If the food is not nutritious or healthy, the risk of patient malnutrition is very real - and extremely dangerous.
Not providing patients with enough calories or essentials vitamins and minerals can have grave consequences. Over time, if a loved one does not eat enough food or fails to get the proper nutrients, he or she could develop serious health problems. In extreme cases, a patient can die if he or she fails to eat enough food over a period of time. In such cases, your family may have grounds for filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
