Patients in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities are often unable to move without assistance, even to use the bathroom. While some elderly adults or people with certain medical conditions may be more prone to constipation than others, when a nursing home patient suffers from a bowel obstruction or fecal impaction, negligence on the part of the nursing home is often a contributing factor.

Symptoms of a partial or complete bowel obstruction may include abdominal pain, vomiting and bloating. If a bowel obstruction is left untreated, serious complications can occur and death may occur.

Understaffing in nursing homes is a serious issue that is not uncommon. With too few staff members available to make certain that each resident is getting the proper care, including bathroom assistance, proper diet, enemas and other treatment, patients can fall victim to neglect. Additionally, failure to review the medical history of patients and other quality control issues can lead to negligence and dangerous conditions in nursing homes.
