Signs Of Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect

When we leave a loved one in the care of a nursing home, we assume he or she will receive loving professional care and concern. We often take for granted that this is what a nursing home is providing our loved one until something suggests otherwise. Some of the signs that nursing home abuse and neglect might be happening can include:

  • Bedsores
  • Unexplained fractures
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Bruises and other injuries
  • Falls
  • Improper use of restraints
  • Lost appetite
  • Fear or withdrawal

Within a nursing home setting, various types of harm can be inflicted on residents. They may be subjected to physical, emotional or sexual abuse. Residents may be neglected and left without the care they require and deserve. Issues also arise involving nursing homes taking advantage of residents or their family financially.
