Types of Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

Most forms of nursing home neglect stem from understaffing, meaning there are not enough caregivers to properly care for all residents. Another common situation is poorly trained staff members, who are incapable of ensuring all residents are properly fed, taken care of, and monitored.

As you can see, these issues begin at the corporate level, which is why having an experienced attorney on your side can ensure that these powerful entities are held liable for their actions.

  • The most common types of abuse and neglect in nursing homes include:
  • Physical abuse
  • Psychological and emotional abuse
  • Staff inattention
  • Overmedication
  • Financial exploitation

If you start to notice several indicators of abuse (e.g. malnutrition, dehydration, weight loss, bedsores, unexplained bruising, poor hygiene, or a drastic change in behavior), you must investigate the matter. Depending on the severity of neglect, you may want to get your loved one out of the home and into a differing nursing facility.
