Types of Abuse & Neglect
Nursing home facilities, employees, and caretakers have a legal obligation to ensure elderly residents do not suffer preventable harm. No matter which form the abuse and neglect takes, it represents a failure in nursing home facilities and workers to uphold their legal duty. By highlighting these failures and establishing them as the cause of injuries, we can put victims and their loved ones in a position to make a full recovery of their damages.
Examples of nursing home abuse and neglect include:
- Physical abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Financial exploitation
- Sexual abuse
- Social neglect
- Neglecting basic needs
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medication errors
- Neglecting hygiene
- Medical neglect
Because elderly residents may be unable or unwilling to come forward about abuse and neglect, it often becomes the responsibility of family members to remain vigilant and aware of any potential signs. Changes in mood or personality, bedsores, dehydration, malnutrition, and unexplained injuries are a few signs to look for when visiting a loved one.
Compensation For Victims & Families
A successful elder abuse claim can allow victims and families to hold wrongdoers accountable for their wrongdoing and victims’ damages. Although recoveries will vary from case to case, victims have the right to pursue compensation that may cover:
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
- Loss of quality of life
- Emotional injuries
