If your loved one is exhibiting signs of malnutrition or dehydration, these may be symptoms of a medical condition that reduces the appetite. They may also be warning signs, however, that an overworked staff is not able to stay on top of your loved one's personal health plan. Ignoring nutritional needs in order to cut corners, however, makes the management company liable for damages for medical treatment and pain and suffering. In the event of gross negligence, significant punitive damages may also be awarded.
