What is Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect?

Nursing home abuse and neglect can take many forms. No matter how abuse or neglect occurs, it should never be tolerated. Assisted living facilities and employers are required by law to provide safe conditions for residents and to meet an expected standard of care. When they fail to uphold this duty and elderly residents suffer harm as a result, they can be held fully accountable for the injuries and damages victims suffer.

Common examples of nursing home abuse and neglect include:

  • Physical abuse or assault
  • Improper use of restraints
  • Sexual abuse
  • Dehydration or malnutrition
  • Neglecting hygiene
  • Social isolation
  • Emotional abuse or intimidation
  • Bedsores / pressure ulcers
  • Environmental hazards on property
  • Financial exploitation

Because victims are elderly and may lack the ability to speak out, it is very common for abuse and neglect to go unreported. As such, friends and family members can take it upon themselves to watch for signs of abuse or neglect, including:

  • Unexplained injuries, bruises, or burns
  • Unusual behavior or mood changes
  • Weight loss or decline in health
  • Missing funds or items
  • Poor hygiene or living conditions
