Recognizing nursing home abuse
There are several forms of nursing home abuse and neglect and the statistics for this are chilling, considering that one out of four nursing homes is accused of causing death or injury to a resident or residents every year.
Elders with conditions like dementia are even more vulnerable. Unfortunately many of these cases are not reported for fear that the abuse may get worse. Consequently, the victim’s family is in the dark. Some warning signs of abuse are:
- Broken bones, fractures
- Bed sores, injuries, ulcers
- Medication errors
- Head injury, falls
- Physical Assault and abuse
- Verbal abuse
- Burn injuries
- Poor supervision
- Dehydration, inadequate nutrition
- Soiled bedding
- Poor hygiene
- Fear, withdrawal
- Frequent crying
- Complaints about being treated badly
- Financial abuse
