Nursing home abuse is always a tragic set of circumstances. You want to trust the staff and administration of the nursing home facility you have selected to care for your loved one. The betrayal of that trust is devastating and can unfortunately take many forms. As a relative of a nursing home occupant, you should be aware of the ways that your loved one may be in danger, including:
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Lack of supervision of residents
- Sexual assault
- Physical abuse
- Emotional or psychological abuse
- Financial or material exploitation
The injuries sustained by your abused loved one can have long-lasting effects. He or she may suffer broken bones that impair mobility or emotional harm that causes he or she to live in fear. In severe cases, the abuse may even lead to the death of your loved one.
