What is Nursing Home Abuse?
Placing a loved one in a long-term care facility is one of the most difficult decisions a family can make. With over 1.3 million residents in nursing homes nationwide, more families are making this choice. You deserve the peace of mind that comes with knowing your loved one receives the proper care. Nursing home abuse occurs when a resident of a nursing home or assisted living facility suffers from mistreatment or neglect.
At Morgan & Morgan, we understand that nothing is more important than ensuring your loved one is well cared for. Our team of attorneys possesses a deep understanding of the laws governing nursing home abuse cases and has a demonstrated record of delivering results to our clients and their families.

- Physical Abuse
- Emotional or Psychological Abuse
- Financial Exploitation
- Failure to assist in personal hygiene
- Failure to provide timely meals

- Sexual Abuse
How Does Nursing Home Abuse Occur?
Several factors can contribute to the occurrence of nursing home abuse or neglect. Understanding these factors and how to identify them is critical in establishing that abuse has occurred. The dedicated team of 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

Signs Your Loved One is Experiencing Neglect or Abuse
According to a study by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) Instances of nursing home abuse are often underreported. It can be difficult for families to identify instances of nursing home abuse. Family members are not always able to visit as frequently as they would like, and the vulnerable members of the elderly population are often unable to advocate for themselves.
The following signs and symptoms may indicate that your loved one 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
