Malnutrition & Dehydration Lawyers | Romanucci & Blandin
For nursing home residents, receiving proper nutrition and hydration is critical to their health. If a resident does not receive sufficient nutrition or hydration, they are put at a higher risk for developing health problems, including:
- Ability to heal from infection
- Muscle weakness
- Pressure ulcers
As we get older, we have less water content in our bodies, which results in a lessened thirst response. This puts nursing home residents at risk for dehydrating. It is essential that residents receive an increased fluid intake to avoid dehydration and fluid intake should be monitored.
If you or a loved one has suffered from malnutrition or dehydration, our nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers are here to help you with your case.

Nursing homes have an obligation to prevent malnutrition and dehydration from occurring in their residents, and they should take proper steps to monitor residents’ food and drink intake and output.
