What is Nursing Home Abuse?
With over 1.3 million residents in nursing homes nationwide, an increasing number of families are making the choice to place family members in long-term care facilities. When your family faces this difficult decision, you deserve the peace of mind that comes with knowing your loved one is being well cared for. Nursing home abuse occurs when a resident of a nursing home or assisted living facility suffers from mistreatment or neglect.
At Morgan & Morgan, we know how devastating it can be to discover that a family member has been neglected or abused by the very place and people tasked with their care. Our attorneys understand the intricacies of this area of law and have a proven history of passionately representing victims of nursing home abuse and their families.
Nursing home abuse can occur in many forms, the most common of which 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?
Several factors may give rise to the occurrence of nursing home abuse or neglect. With an extensive background in this area of law, the attorneys at Morgan & Morgan have the knowledge and experience to analyze the circumstances of your case.
The most common causes of nursing home abuse are:
- Inadequate training
- Inadequate supervision
- High turnover rates
- Poor hiring practices

Signs Your Loved One is Experiencing Neglect or Abuse
It is not uncommon for signs of nursing home abuse or neglect to go unnoticed. According to a recent study by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) nursing home abuse is often underreported. Family members are often unable to visit as frequently as they would like, and the elderly victims cannot advocate for themselves.

- Extreme weight loss
- Unexplained cuts, bruising, or burns
- Evidence of unnecessary restraints (such as bruising or cuts on the wrists)
