How Abuse & Neglect Run Rampant in Nursing Homes

Many nursing homes and long-term care facilities for the elderly are owned by for-profit corporations seeking to maximum profits. As a result, many nursing homes are understaffed or are staffed by unqualified or inexperienced employees. Too often, this leads to abuse or neglect within the facility.

Residents might not receive the assistance they need with routine activities, such as eating, bathing, or walking. They might not receive the medical treatment or supervision they need to remain healthy. In the worst cases, they might even suffer physical, emotional, financial, or sexual abuse.

Sometimes, abuse and neglect go unnoticed. Elderly residents might be unable or unsure how to report their suffering.

If you have a loved one in a nursing home facility, be on the lookout for warning signs of neglect and abuse including:

  • Wounds or cuts
  • Unsanitary conditions in their room or in the facility
  • Infections
  • A change in your loved one’s personality or mood
  • Malnutrition or starvation
  • Significant weight loss
  • Bedsores
  • Dehydration
  • Physical restraints

No one – especially not vulnerable elders – should have to suffer neglect or abuse in a facility designed to care for them. At Ashcraft & Gerel, we are passionate about protecting the elderly residents of nursing homes and holding institutions accountable for the abuse that takes place in their facilities.
