Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse is not a subject that can easily be touched upon. No one likes to hear about how their loved one was mistreated or hurt. When you place the care of your loved one to a nursing home or assisted living facility, you want to know that you are putting your trust in the right place. Unfortunately, however, nursing home abuse is not uncommon, and can be the cause of your family member’s pain and suffering.
Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
If you suspect your family member of suffering from nursing home abuse, there are several signs to look for. These include:
- Physical injuries, including bruises, abrasions, or bed sores
- Bloody or stained clothing
- Visit times are delayed or rejected
- Frequent arguments between caregivers and loved ones
- Poor hygiene
- Hazardous or unsafe living conditions
- Constant thirst and hunger
- Soiled bedding
- Weakness or inexplicable weight loss
- Sudden personality changes
- Uncharacteristic anger, lack of interest, depression, or anxiety
- Fear of being alone

- Suicidal tendencies
