  • Common Causes of Nursing Home Abuse in The Bronx

    Nursing home abuse occurs for many reasons. Sadly, it happens in nursing homes across the country, including in Georgia. There are several reasons why nursing home abuse occurs with some frequency.

    Inadequate Training: Caregivers must have proper training to know how to provide care to residents. When a nursing home does not provide training to employees or fails to give enough training, the result can be a staff that doesn’t know what is expected. They may not be aware of how to offer good care to people who are nursing home residents.

    Poor Management: Workers who are unsupervised or are not provided with the information they need to do their jobs may be more likely to abuse residents. Staff members may not be properly prepared to provide care, and they might not have the support of a caring management team.

    Insufficient Staffing: Nursing homes often have a high turnover rate and may not have the funds to pay good wages. Therefore, the quality of the nursing home staff may be inadequate, and the available staff may be overworked and underpaid. They may try to take shortcuts in care to handle the number of residents they have, but the care they provide may be inadequate.

    These are examples of some of the common causes of abuse in nursing homes and not excuses. If you believe abuse is occurring in a nursing home, contact the authorities. You can start by alerting the Bronx Sheriff’s Department or the New York State Department of Human Services.

  • Injuries Common with Abuse

    Two common injuries that can indicate abuse in nursing homes are broken bones and bedsores.

    Broken Bones – Broken bones or bone fractures are common injuries in nursing homes. They may occur due to falls. A broken bone or fracture isn’t always a simple injury for an elderly person. One of the most common injuries of this type is a hip fracture, which often requires replacement.

    Bedsores – Bedsores are also known as pressure ulcers. They are small, painful marks on the skin that can worsen and cause serious medical harm. They form because an immobile person has not been repositioned adequately. Bedsores can quickly worsen, and a wound can open up, causing it to easily become infected.
