Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
It is an unfortunate fact that many of the people who live in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities are subjected to various types of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse on a regular basis. If you have reason to suspect that an elderly loved one is being subjected to some type of abuse or mistreatment in a nursing home, then don’t hesitate to take action to handle the situation. Your family member’s health, safety, and well-being could be at stake. Some of the most common warning signs to watch for include:
- Unexplained bruises, cuts, or other injuries
- Development of bed sores/pressure sores
- Hospitalization for a broken bone or similar injury
- Major decline in personal hygiene
- Squalid personal quarters
- Inexplicable changes in mood or behavior, such as expressions of anxiety or fear
- Aversion to being left alone
Taking Action Against the Nursing Home
By proving that the nursing home staff has subjected your family member to some form of elder abuse, you may be able to recover financial compensation for everything from medical expenses to damages for pain, suffering, and emotional distress. You can claim similar damages in a wrongful death lawsuit. Keep in mind that by taking legal action now, you will not only be helping to secure justice for your family member, but you also will be saving others from suffering similar abuse by holding the guilty parties responsible.
