What You Should Know About Nursing Home Abuse
Abuse / neglect happens to 1 in 10 nursing home residents on average, according to recent statistics. Types of abuse can vary and may include sexual, physical, emotional, and / or financial abuse. Some extreme cases may even result in wrongful death.
Some causes and contributing factors of nursing home abuse include:
- A lack of training / education for employees
- A lack of oversight
- Failure to thoroughly vet and background train new hires
Victims of nursing home abuse may suffer from severe health issues or conditions that impact them mentally. As a result, many are “silent victims,” unable to report the abuse they are receiving. Knowing how to watch for signs of abuse, staying vigilant, visiting frequently, and showing interest and attentiveness could protect your loved one from a harmful situation. Know how to choose a reputable nursing home and continue to watch for warning signs. If you see something suspicious, take action.
"We feel Carolyn did an excellent job. She took on our case as another attorney said she wouldn’t touch it. So to take on this case and have one hearing with a judge that might be a little tougher says a lot to us about Carolyn."- Larry H.
