As our quality of life improves, people are living longer than ever before. As a result, many of our family members and loved ones will spend time in a nursing home or long term care facility.  Although most nursing homes and other long term health care facilities are reputable and provide good care for their residents, there are unfortunately many that fail to provide adequate care.  

Taking care of our parents and elderly is a big industry.  Cases of abuse and neglect of the elderly are rising as the number of nursing home residents’ rise.  Instances of abuse include the following:

PHYSICAL ABUSE:

  • Open wounds, cuts, bruises, or welts
  • Caretaker cannot adequately explain condition
  • Elder’s sudden change in behavior
  • Loss of weight
  • Burns caused by cigarettes, caustics, or acids

EMOTIONAL ABUSE:

  • Emotionally upset or agitated
  • Extremely withdrawn and non-communicative
  • Unusual behavior (sucking, biting, rocking)

NEGLECT:

  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Pressure sores
  • Unclean conditions
  • Begging for food
  • Fecal or urine odors
  • Falls, broken bones or injury caused by lack of supervision
