What is Nursing Home Abuse?
Nursing home abuse is more common than many people would like to believe. Over 5 million elders in nursing homes suffer abuse annually. Over 44 percent of residents in nursing homes have reported suffering abuse while 90 percent have reported being neglected.
There are different forms of abuse. These include:
This is the form of abuse that many people associate with the term ‘nursing home abuse.’ It involves the intentional infliction of physical injury to the nursing home resident. This may include hitting or physically restraining the resident for no medical reason.
Neglect may not seem as serious as physical abuse but it is still a form of abuse and can have consequences that are just as serious as physical abuse. Neglect occurs when the nursing home staff fails to meet the needs of the nursing home resident. This may include not providing adequate or nutritious meals, not providing assistance to those with mobility issues and thus resulting in bed sores and other complications, or even failing to assist residents with their personal hygiene.
Nursing home residents are often vulnerable. They are easy prey to sexual abuse from nursing home staff members. Sexual abuse may be physical or emotional. It may involve inappropriate touching, forced sexual intercourse, or even being forced to watch pornographic material.
Emotional or psychological abuse
Nursing home abuse may also be emotional or psychological. Staff members may intimidate, mock or even humiliate residents.
No matter what form of abuse your loved one has suffered, you can rely on an experienced NYC nursing home abuse lawyer from the Law Offices of Frank Bruno, Jr. to defend your loved one’s rights and seek justice on their behalf.
