We have found that nursing home abuse has been spreading throughout the nation as well as in South Carolina. It is estimated that up to 30% of nursing home facilities commit some sort of abuse on their patients. Some signs of physical and mental elder abuse include, but are not limited to:
- Bed Sores
- Bone fractures
- Open wounds
- Neglect or Abandonment
- Verbal Abuse
These signs of abuse frequently occur in nursing home facilities that are either understaffed or have unqualified and/or poorly trained staff members. The quality of care at these facilities continuously decrease because the residents don’t inform anyone of any abuse due to the fact that they fear the abuse may get worse.
