We have the knowledge and experience needed to pursue compensation for the injuries that your loved one experienced.

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:

  • Neglect
  • 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:

  • Abandonment
  • Falling
  • Hitting
  • Pushing
  • Burning
  • Kicking
  • Restraining
  • 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 If your loved one is acting withdrawn or showing signs of nursing home abuse of any kind, contact our firm at once.
