Any care that falls short of these standards or enters the realm of abuse is against the law.

What Does Nursing Home Abuse Look Like?

One of the many tragedies of nursing home abuse is the low percentage of cases victims report. Thousands of nursing home and elder abuse victims never come forward with their experiences. It is often up to their friends and family members to notice the signs of different types of elder abuse.

  • Physical abuse or neglect. The physical abuse of a senior citizen can refer to any intentional harm against an elder, such as a staff member kicking or punching a nursing home resident. It can also describe the neglect of a resident’s care, such as malnourishment or infections.
  • Sexual abuse. Sexual abuse is the victimization of a vulnerable or defenseless senior citizen during non-consensual sexual acts, such as sexual touching, kissing, advances, indecent exposure, molestation, sodomy, or rape.
  • Mental or emotional abuse. A nursing home resident could suffer humiliation, stress, anxiety, depression, fear, shame, guilt, withdrawal, isolation, or suicidal thoughts due to a nursing home staff member verbally, emotionally, or mentally abusing him or her.
  • Financial abuse. Thousands of seniors experience financial abuse or exploitation at the hands of nursing homes, staff members, caregivers, con artists, scammers, friends, and even family members. Financial abuse may or may not be used in conjunction with other types of elder abuse.

A victim of nursing home abuse could have unexplained physical injuries, infections, emotional damages, mental health declines, and financial losses. If you notice any possible signs of abuse, talk to your loved one about it. Then, report your suspicions to the police and the nursing home facility. Take your loved one to a safe place and contact Jensen Phelan Law Firm, P.C. for legal advice.
