What is Nursing Home Abuse?

Nursing home abuse is the conscious harming of a resident by staff. It may include direct physical or emotional abuse and deliberate neglect

Some common examples of abusive behavior in nursing homes include: 

Old woman gets help with walking from a nurse

It can be difficult for loved ones of nursing home residents to detect signs of abuse. The National Center for Biotechnical Information reports that only one out of every fourteen elder abuse cases are reported. Staff may compel residents to stay silent, so it is up to a resident’s family to be mindful of the nursing home’s environment. 

If you suspect that a loved one is being abused in a nursing home, our team of understanding elder abuse lawyers are ready to assist you and your family. 

Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Recognizing the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect can sometimes be difficult. No two instances may be the same. 

Family members and friends should be on the lookout for the following signs:

It is difficult to think about a loved one being mistreated, but recognizing these signs may help stop elder abuse and document it for future action.
