Nursing home abuse may take the form of physical abuse, which may lead to catastrophic injury to the frail body of an elderly person. In other cases, emotional or psychological abuse may be used against a nursing home resident. Nursing home abuse can be rooted in any number types of negligent behavior, from withholding food and water, which may lead to malnutrition or dehydration, to an easily documented negligence such as failure to provide medical care.

Other types of nursing home abuse

Other cases of nursing home abuse may qualify as sexual assault if they involve any type of non-consensual sexual contact or interaction. Even if there is no touching of any kind, an act such as coerced nudity still qualifies as nursing home sexual assault.

How to identify nursing home abuse

While nursing home abuse is not always obvious, you can look for signs that your loved one was abused at a home. Common indicators include bruises or cuts that no one can explain. If you notice your loved one's clothing is ripped or has blood on it, you may have a case of abuse. Other injuries, such as broken bones, can be a sign of abuse. Staff at a nursing home also may over-medicate a resident, which could be a form of abuse.

Any infliction of pain or distress on a resident should be brought to light and the responsible parties held accountable. You can rely on Gary Martin Hays & Associates. We provide tireless advocacy for our clients' nursing home injury cases.
