Dehydration in a Nursing Home, and Your Legal Rights
Dehydration in a nursing home may be the result of negligence. A person who lives in a nursing home has the right to have their basic needs met. They may expect to live in a safe facility and receive necessary care.
Dehydration occurs when the body doesn’t have enough fluid to function normally. Usually, chronic dehydration is the result of insufficient fluid intake over a long period.
Too often, dehydration is ultimately the result of poor living conditions in a nursing home. When a resident’s medical condition can be traced to negligence, the resident may have the right to claim financial compensation.

- Not making adjustments when there are signs that a person’s fluid intake is low
- Problems with water safety and available drinking water
- Inadequate staff to ensure that a person’s needs are met
- Certain medications, like cancer medications, cause excessive sweating
