When we choose to put our elderly loved ones into a nursing home, we expect them to be treated respectfully and properly cared for. Unfortunately, more and more, we are seeing cases of nursing home abuse, where employees and staff of a nursing home are not only failing to care for our loved ones properly but are treating them with disdain and neglect.
Identifying nursing home abuse can be tricky. Often, a loved one may be embarrassed or scared to tell others of the abuse they endure. Similarly, an elderly loved one may be non-verbal or unable to express what is happening to them. Because of this, many cases of nursing home abuse actually go unreported, allowing the caretakers to continue their abuse on multiple patients.
At Klein Law Group, we believe that when a family chooses to put their loved ones in the care of a nursing home, they shouldn’t have to worry about what happens to them when they aren’t around.
To help identify signs of nursing home abuse, look for things like:
Nursing home residents can also be victims of sexual abuse, financial exploitation and emotional abuse.
