If you’re looking into nursing homes for yourself or a loved one, it’s important to be aware of nursing home red flags. Before making a decision, tour the nursing home and pay attention to a few key areas to ensure that you have peace of mind.
According to U.S. News, nursing home red flags include:
- High turnover of staff
- Few late-morning activites
- Complaints filed with the state about abuse
- Bad odors
- Unclean areas, especially residential rooms
Touring the nursing home can help you get a feel for the overall atmosphere. If you see any nursing home red flags, it’s important to ask questions and get more information before making a decision.
