What Is Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect?
Neglect and abuse in care facilities is more widespread than many people realize. Whether it’s a single instance of abuse or ongoing neglect resulting in malnutrition, dehydration, or bedsores, your loved one has rights.
Examples of nursing home abuse and neglect may include a failure to:
- administer proper medication,
- assist in personal hygiene,
- care for wounds and bedsores,
- clean and maintain the facility,
- provide adequate medical care,
- properly assist incontinent residents,
- and meet patients’ nutritional needs.
Your loved one may not be able to communicate what’s happening, so be on the lookout for telltale signs of abuse or neglect. Unexplained bruises, burns, cuts, sprains, fractures, or infections—as well as limits on visitation—may be indicators of abuse or neglect.
