Types of Nursing Home Abuse
By entrusting your loved one to a nursing home or a long-term care provider,
you are putting your confidence in the care they offer. It is natural
to expect that your parent or other relative will be treated properly
and will be given the full medical care he or she requires. With the high
volume of patients in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, quality
of care has become a major concern. Nursing home abuse is a present reality
that can take various forms, including:
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Psychological trauma
Neglect in a nursing home can include the failure to provide residents
with a proper standard of care that is not only deserved but is expected.
Some of the injuries that readily occur within nursing home abuse cases
include malnourishment, dehydration, lesions, and rashes.
Physical abuse can vary depending on the circumstances, but it can take
the form of:
- Denying food
- Denying beverages
- Forcing to consume food
- Forcing to consume beverages
Nursing home abuse can also come in the form of sexual abuse. Nursing home
sexual abuse takes place when an individual engages in sexual acts with
a resident without his or her consent. If your loved one is acting withdrawn
or showing signs of nursing home abuse of any kind,
