Protecting The Elderly From Nursing Home Abuse

When you entrust the medical professionals and staff of a nursing home to care for your elderly loved one, you expect that he or she will be provided with the appropriate care and treated with the utmost dignity and respect.

Unfortunately, budgetary issues, understaffing, improper training and other issues at nursing homes too often lead to inadequate supervision, inappropriate care and other forms of abuse and neglect of elderly dependent adults. The resulting injuries can be catastrophic and may result in disability or wrongful death.

Standing Up For Your Loved Ones

Typically, nursing homes represent to family members that they will provide their loved one with excellent care, and that he or she will receive compassionate, individual attention. These establishments often boast that their staff is highly trained to manage the physical and emotional needs of the elderly.

In reality, severe verbal, emotional, sexual and physical abuse is widespread throughout nursing homes. Some of the most frequent nursing home injuries caused by neglect or abuse include:

  • Bedsores and pressure sores
  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Infection
  • Falls and broken bones
  • Injuries or death caused by wandering or elopement
  • Complications from medication errors
  • Physical and sexual assault
  • Psychological trauma
