What Do Strange Odors In Nursing Homes Have To Do With Nursing Home Abuse?

Strange or offensive odors in nursing homes are common and should never be tolerated. Sometimes, these odors occur due to serious problems in nursing homes that could threaten the health and well-being of nursing home residents.

Strange or potentially harmful odors in nursing homes may be due to:

  • Unsanitary nursing home conditions (nursing home not cleaned regularly or thoroughly)
  • Nursing home neglect (especially nursing home patient neglect)
  • Poor nursing home patient hygiene (residents not being cleaned regularly)
  • Bed sores or other infections due to nursing home neglect
  • Rotting or decaying food
  • Garbage left in nursing home too long
  • Toxic chemicals (especially due to improperly used cleaning products)

These are just some of the examples of odors or smells in nursing homes which should be cause for alarm. If you notice these smells every time you visit the nursing home and your loved one’s health suddenly seems to be deteriorating, it might not be a coincidence.
