Nursing homes are supposed to be places where the elderly are cared for and can live in comfort and peace. Yet many nursing homes hire negligent staff members who don't care about helping their patients. Instead, they may neglect the elderly, leaving them to suffer terrible ailments or abuses.

Types of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse comes in many different forms. Sometimes, nursing home residents may not even be aware that they are being abused. It is important for family members to watch out for any signs of abuse and stay attentive to their loved ones if they are put in a nursing home.

Types of nursing home abuse include:


Negligence
Sexual abuse
Financial abuse
Emotional abuse
Verbal abuse
Physical abuse
Overmedication / antipsychotic drugging

Signs of Nursing Home Neglect

Your loved one may not be able to communicate that he or she is being neglected in a nursing home. Staff members in nursing homes often prey on patients with dementia or other mental deficiencies because they assume they will not be found out.

Watch for these signs of nursing home neglect:


Dehydration / starvation
Bed sores
Depression
Uncleanliness
Less communication
Obvious fear
Heightened stress
Exhaustion
