Types of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

There are many different types of nursing home abuse. Unfortunately, nursing home residents are sometimes unable to communicate what is happening to them due to issues such as dementia or physical or verbal disabilities. That is why it is important for family members and friends to be aware of the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect.

Some of the most common types of nursing home abuse and neglect include:

  • Physical abuse - This type of nursing home abuse includes any type of physical force that causes bodily harm, pain, or injury.
  • Sexual abuse - Nursing home residents may be subject to multiple forms of sex abuse, including sexual assault, sexual exploitation, or any type of non-consensual sexual contact. In some cases, perpetrators may target patients with Alzheimer's disease or other mental health issues because they believe that the person will not be able to report what has happened to others.
  • Emotional abuse - Staff members may engage in multiple types of abusive behavior against nursing home residents, including terrorizing, humiliating, intimidating, or isolating a patient. These actions can cause a great deal of emotional distress, which may lead to multiple types of other health issues.
  • Financial exploitation - Nursing home patients may be taken advantage of financially by nursing home staff, other residents, or visitors. This type of nursing home abuse can include anything from identity theft to forgery to outright theft of a person's money or belongings.
  • Neglect - In situations where nursing homes are understaffed or where staff members do not have the proper training, a nursing home may fail to provide residents with the basic necessities of life, such as food, water, shelter, or medical care.

If you believe your loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, it is important to take action immediately.

Do not let nursing home abuse go unchecked. Abuse or neglect at the hands of nursing home staff can cause serious physical and emotional damage. Your loved one should not have to suffer because of someone else's irresponsible actions or negligence.
