Common forms of Nursing Home Abuse
As America’s population grows increasingly to an elderly demographic, many families must face the difficult decision to place their loved ones into the care of nursing homes. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse is becoming increasingly prevalent due to short-staffing, inadequate training, low wages, and insufficient employee supervision. Common forms of nursing home abuse may include:
- Bed sores (pressure sores)
- Financial abuse
- Weight loss
- Insufficient hygiene
- Unexplained injuries (cuts, bruises, broken bones)
- Sexual abuse
- Lack of supervision
- Improper restraint (physical or pharmaceutical)
