  • Types of Nursing Home Abuse

    You rely on your loved one’s caretakers to be helpful, attentive, and most importantly, ethical. Nursing home abuse comes in many different forms. Here’s an overview of the main categories:

    • Physical: In a nursing home, physical abuse doesn’t have to be assault or battery. Overmedication, excessive physical restraint, and force-feeding are all considered physical abuse.
    • Emotional: The basic forms of emotional abuse include insensitive or harmful remarks, verbal degradation, and threats. However, emotional abuse also refers to manipulation or deceit.
    • Financial: Your loved one’s caretaker may be responsible for handling finances. Cashing checks without permission, adding names to cards, and changing wills may all be considered financial abuse.
    • Sexual: As unthinkable as it may be, sexual abuse does happen in nursing homes. This abuse occurs when a resident experiences unwanted sexual contact from a staff member, another resident, a visitor, or even a family member.
    • Neglect: While the above types of abuse come from direct actions, neglect is also a type of abuse. It’s the caretaker’s job to provide your loved one with the services and attention that you signed off on. If the caretaker fails to assist with things like personal hygiene, medicine regimens, or health and safety hazards, they may be guilty of neglect.
  • Warning Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

    You can’t stop nursing home abuse if you don’t recognize it, and some red flags are more subtle than others. Here are a few examples of signs you should look out for:

    • Bedsores
    • Dehydration
    • Emotionally upset or socially withdrawn
    • Changes in personality or behaviors
    • Unreported illnesses
    • Excessive medication
    • Unsanitary conditions
    • Bruises, fractures, or other physical injuries
    • Infections
    • Attempts to leave
    • Malnutrition
    • Rapid weight change
    • Unexplained or unexpected death

    This is not an exhaustive list of signs. If your loved one is suffering from or has suffered from nursing home abuse, don’t wait to contact Morgan & Morgan’s Charleston, West Virginia office.
