  • Reasons Abuse Can Occur in New Albany Nursing Homes

    Mistreatment is more likely to occur in poorly performing nursing homes with the following problems:

    Underqualified and Improperly Trained Staff: Disabled and elderly residents need a particular type of care. Therefore, nursing home staff members lacking qualifications and training may be less able to care for residents properly.

    Understaffing: Nursing homes need enough staff members to care for all their residents. Unfortunately, understaffing is a massive problem in the US, creating situations where abuse and neglect are more likely to happen.

    Poor Management: Lack of accountability, supervision, and organization can promote abusive or neglectful behavior among staff members. Poor management may also lead to disgruntled employees who may retaliate by abusing residents.

    Underreporting: Many nursing home abuse cases remain unresolved due to underreporting, even though it’s required by law. Without proper action on negligent nursing homes, injustices against patients are more likely to continue.

    If you suspect any of these issues are occurring at your loved one’s nursing home, it’s a good idea to move them to another facility.

  • How Nursing Home Abuse Can Affect Your Loved One

    Many nursing home abuse victims suffer severe and long-term consequences from the mistreatment, including:

    • Severe injuries
    • Psychological trauma
    • Emotional distress
    • Financial losses
    • Loss of quality of life
    • Reduced family or social ties
    • Increased risk of illnesses

    Elderly residents suffer the worst due to increased physical and mental vulnerability. Physically abusing or neglecting an older person can easily lead to severe injury, illness, and even death.

  • Nursing Home Residents with the Highest Risk for Abuse

    Some nursing home residents are more vulnerable to mistreatment than others, including:

    • Patients with physical or mental disabilities
    • Patients with special needs
    • Patients with access to an abundance of wealth
    • Dementia patients
    • Women and children
    • Patients in understaffed nursing facilities
    • Patients isolated from their loved ones

    While these nursing residents are at a higher risk for abuse, it can happen to anyone. Neglect is also a form of abuse, and it occurs with alarming frequency in nursing homes that are understaffed or lack adequate resources.
