Malnutrition and dehydration are common issues that occur among residents at long term care facilities when their individualized needs are not met by the staff. Some residents must be placed on strict diets while others require feeding tubes and are completely dependent on the facility staff for their nutritional needs. Malnutrition puts residents at risk of developing further issues such as weight loss, pressure ulcers, and infections. Similarly, dehydration also puts residents at risk of complications including falls, strokes, renal dysfunction, and even death.

It is a facility’s duty to adequately train their staff on the needs of their residents. It is also very important for them to properly staff the facility. A common cause of malnutrition and dehydration is understaffing because when a facility is understaffed, residents do not receive the individualized attention that they require and neglect occurs. Understaffing during mealtimes is common and detrimental to residents, especially those that need assistance eating. Without the proper staff, it is possible that some residents are not finishing their meals if eating at all. Additionally, residents who require a feeding tube are at a heightened risk of malnutrition and dehydration since they depend entirely on facility staff to provide adequate nutrition for them. These residents are increasingly susceptible to other complications such as constipation and vomiting which greatly deteriorates their health. It is vital that their nutritional needs are adequately understood and maintained.

I had a heartfelt and memorable experience with Ben , very genuine and I can tell he loves what he does. His determination shows beautifully and it is amazing. In my opinion it is very rare you find people who love what they're doing and it shows. Not wanting to get religious on an review but, God introduced me to Ben for a reason. Summer
★★★★★
Ben was wonderful. He took our case when no one else was interested or wanted way to much money. We would highly recommend Ben because he really listens and takes your situation into consideration. We settled our case and we were only unhappy with one thing and that was the confidentiality clause but that was not Ben's fault it came with the deal. June
