Health Problems and Dehydration
In order to function properly and remain healthy, the human body requires a certain amount of water or other liquids. This is just as important as food, and a lack of the proper amount of water may lead to dehydration and a number of health problems. The initial symptoms of dehydration may include weariness, lethargy, weakness, and headaches. An elderly person suffering from dehydration may be more susceptible to illness or to injury in a fall or other accident. Left untreated, severe dehydration will eventually lead to death.
If your loved one has complained of poor living conditions or of any physical indicators that may point to dehydration or any type of nursing home abuse or neglect, it is important to act quickly. This may help ensure matters do not escalate and that you have a better opportunity of seeking justice.Contact a Los Angeles nursing home negligence attorney at our offices to talk about dehydration and your options in taking legal action.
