Elder & Nursing Home Abuse
The decision to move yourself or a loved one into the care of a nursing home can be tough, especially with legal negligence and abuse cases making news far too often. Our elderly friends and family members have difficulty adjusting or are resistant to moving into an assisted living and care facility.
Nursing homes have a responsibility to care for and protect the residents. All nursing home employees are obligated to provide services for the residents to help maintain and improve the quality of their lives.
Violation of Trust
At times, the trust a resident places in the nursing home is violated when they are neglected, mistreated, or abused.
Common Signs of Elder Abuse
- Broken or fractured bones
- Head injuries
- Open wounds, cuts, punctures, untreated injuries in various stages of healing
- Broken eyeglasses, dentures, hearing aids
- Signs of punishment or physical restraint
- Your loved one tells you they have been mistreated
- A sudden change in behavior
- The nursing home refuses to allow unsupervised visits
