Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse can be physical, sexual, emotional, or even financial in nature. In many cases, it takes a while to see all of the signs because the mistreatment is hidden by staff. If your loved one is showing signs of bruising, trauma, or a change in their behavior that is odd, there is a chance they could be suffering from nursing home abuse. Common signs include:

  • Bed Sores
  • Depression
  • Dehydration
  • Bruises and welts
  • Severe behavior changes

When you visit your loved one regularly, you are able to identify these changes early on. Those who do not have frequent visitors are often the first to fall victim to this abuse.

Why Is This Happening

Unfortunately, there are those in the nursing home industry that will take advantage of your trust when you place your loved one in their car. Whether it is a matter of neglect or direct abuse, these individuals are out to prey on elderly patients and take advantage of them in the worst of ways. The National Council on Aging has reported that at least 1 in 10 of these nursing home residents has experienced nursing home abuse in some form and capacity.

Many times this abuse reflects directly on the facility itself. They often under-staff their teams, leaving patients to be neglected and not obtain adequate around the clock care. Doing this day in and day out, stretching that abuse. When staff becomes irritated, they take their anger and frustration out on their patients, leaving your loved ones to fall victim to a situation that they had no control over.
