Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing Home Abuse Lawsuits

Sadly, abuse at nursing homes occurs far too often against senior citizens residing under the protection and care of a licensed care facility. Staff have full access to residents and may act abusively or violently towards certain residents. Abuse in nursing homes comes in a variety of forms, such as physical abuse, mental abuse, emotional abuse, and neglect. When abuse occurs, the resident often exhibits certain symptoms such as injuries, bruising, broken eyeglasses, fear toward staff, dehydration, bedsores, ulcers, and malnutrition. If you have a loved one who is a resident of a nursing home or assisted living facility, keep a watchful eye on your loved one to ensure they aren’t exhibiting any symptoms of abuse.

Should you notice symptoms of abuse, immediately notify local authorities and create a report. Also, create a report with the nursing home or assisted living facility itself. Make sure to document all conversations you have with any staff and take photographs of any signs of abuse or neglect. You should also speak with an experienced nursing home abuse attorney who can assist you and your loved one, as well as advise you of what rights you may have.
