It is not unusual for an expectant mother to worry about her baby's health. And if you are pregnant, you no doubt want your baby to come into the world healthy and strong. But while you wait for the big day to arrive, you need to take good care of yourself. By taking measures to bolster your health, you are also supplementing your baby's well-being.
If you have a relative who is residing in a nursing home that you suspect is being neglectful or abusive, one of the first things you can do is check your loved one for signs of physical injury or duress. Be suspicious if he or she appears to be suffering from malnutrition or dehydration. Also look for bed sores, skin tears or bruises on his or her body.
