What Does Nursing Home Abuse Look Like?
Nursing home abuse can take many forms. Abuse can be physical, emotional
/ psychological, financial, or sexual in nature. Negligence is another
leading cause of avoidable nursing home injuries. Nursing home patients
should be treated with care and respect; their needs should be met, their
dignity preserved, and their wishes heard and prioritized. While many
nursing homes are staffed by caring professionals, unfortunately, this
is not always the case. Abuse is against the law. Speak with a nursing
home abuse lawyer in Pennsylvania about achieving justice.
Who Are the Victims of Nursing Home Negligence / Abuse?
Any nursing home patient can be a victim of abuse. Studies have found that:
- Over a period of two years, over 33% of nursing homes surveyed were cited
for potential harmful violations
- Over a period of two years, almost 10% of nursing homes surveyed were guilty
of violations that caused harm, injury, or even the possibility of wrongful death
- 44% of nursing home residents surveyed reported that they were the victims
of at least one occasion of abuse
- 95% of nursing home residents surveyed reported seeing other residents neglected
There are anti-elder abuse laws in place in all 50 states to prevent
personal injury and
wrongful death. If you have a loved one in a nursing home, it’s important to know
the signs of abuse. If you suspect that your loved one may be in a position
where he / she could be the victim of abuse or negligence, take action.
