Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
Nursing home neglect relates to a nursing home’s failure to provide a resident with the level of care that he or she needs to live comfortably. Examples include the following:
- Failure to provide adequate nutrition and hydration
- Failure to administer the correct medications according to the required schedule
- Failure to provide residents with the help they need for personal hygiene
- Failure to provide residents with adequate opportunities for meaningful social interaction
- Failure to keep residents’ living spaces free from dangerous tripping hazards and impediments to their safe passage
Nursing home neglect, on the other hand, takes an even darker turn because it involves intentional harm. Nursing home abuse can come in any of the following disturbing and dangerous forms:
- Physical abuse
- Emotional or psychological abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Financial abuse
The outward signs of abuse are typically easier to notice because they tend to be more pronounced. If your loved one is exhibiting signs of distress or seems to have undergone an unexplained change in personality, don’t wait to take action.
