What is Nursing Home Abuse?
Deciding to place a loved one in a long-term care facility is one of the most difficult decisions a family can make. Yet with over 1.3 million residents in nursing homes nationwide, families are increasingly making this choice. Nursing home abuse occurs when a resident of a nursing home or assisted living facility suffers from mistreatment or neglect.
The attorneys at Morgan & Morgan understand nothing is more important than ensuring your loved one is well cared for. Our dedicated nursing home abuse attorneys have extensive experience in this area of law and a demonstrated record of delivering results to our clients and their families.
The most common forms of nursing home abuse are:
- Physical Abuse
- Emotional or Psychological Abuse
- Financial Exploitation
- Failure to assist in personal hygiene
- Failure to provide timely meals
- Medication errors
- Sexual Abuse
How Does Nursing Home Abuse Occur?
Nursing home abuse or neglect can occur due to several contributing factors. Understanding these factors and how to identify them is critical in establishing that abuse has occurred. The skilled attorneys at Morgan & Morgan have the knowledge and experience to investigate and pursue a claim on your behalf.
The most common causes that contribute to the occurrence of nursing home abuse include:
- Inadequate training
- Inadequate supervision
- High turnover rates
- Poor hiring practices
- Inadequate resources
- Poor communication
- Inadequate policies
Signs Your Loved One is Experiencing Neglect or Abuse
Nursing home abuse is often underreported, according to a recent study by the Government Accountability Office (GAO). Family members may have a hard time identifying instances of abuse, as they are often unable to visit as frequently as they would like. The elderly long-term care residents are a vulnerable population often unable to advocate for themselves.
The following signs and symptoms may indicate that your loved is suffering from abuse:
- Extreme weight loss
- Unexplained cuts, bruising or burns
- Evidence of unnecessary restraints (such as bruising or cuts on the wrists)
- Sudden changes in personality or behavior
