Identifying Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect
Physical abuse involves hitting, kicking, punching, spitting on, or slapping a nursing home resident. Sexual abuse may involve rape, forced nudity, or other unwanted sexual actions, and emotional abuse may involve yelling at, belittling, or manipulating your loved one. Whatever the case, abuse could lead to severe injuries and emotional trauma for your elderly family member.
The most common signs of nursing home abuse include:
- Broken bones or fractures
- Signs of restraints on the wrists or ankles
- Depression or anxiety
- Torn or bloody underwear
- Unexplained STDs or genital infections
- Broken eyeglasses
- Fear of certain staff members
- Emotional changes
Neglect may also occur, particularly if there are not enough staff members to take care of all the residents. Bed sores, malnutrition or dehydration, frequent falls, and improper medication are common signs of nursing home neglect. In some cases, lazy nursing home staff will give patients sedatives to keep them quiet so the caregivers don't have to take care of them for hours at a time. Nursing home staff and management must be held responsible for failing to provide the proper care and treatment your family member deserves. Our Cedar Rapids nursing home abuse lawyer will use efficient legal strategies to prepare your case.
