The Tragic Realities of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

When the management of a nursing home or eldercare facility fails to properly supervise its employees and injuries result, the victims often suffer in silence. They may not be fully aware of what is happening to them or they may be afraid to speak up. If you believe that a family member or loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse or negligence, you need to take action.

Signs of nursing home abuse and neglect include:

  • Bed sores or pressure ulcers
  • Unexplained bruises or abrasions
  • Overmedication or medication errors
  • Dehydration
  • Uncharacteristic emotional outbursts or emotional withdrawal
  • And others
