Symptoms of Dehydration

Dehydration can lead to dangerous health complications, especially for an elderly individual. Despite stringent laws that explicitly prohibit such an act, negligence in Texas nursing homes can sometimes lead to the dehydration of innocent nursing home residents. If you have ever noticed symptoms of dehydration in your loved one, which subsequently led to dangerous consequences, then you may have grounds to take legal action against the negligent party involved.

Common Symptoms of Dehydration

There are some common symptoms of dehydration that can be rather easy to identify. For instance, common symptoms of dehydration include the following:

  • Persistent dry mouth
  • Headaches
  • Constipation
  • Thirst
  • Decrease in urine output
  • Sleepiness / fatigue
  • Sticky mouth
  • Dizziness

The above list mentions symptoms of dehydration, but not what may unfortunately result if this condition is left untreated for far too long. If your loved one has been wrongfully injured as a result of dehydration while under the care of a Texas nursing home facility, it may be wise to consult with an experience nursing home abuse attorney.
