Types of Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse and neglect can be physical, but it may also be emotional and/or financial. As a family member or friend of a person that resides in a nursing home or other long-term care facility, there are a few signs of abuse or neglect you should look out for if you suspect that they are being purposefully harmed by a staff member or another facility caregiver.
- Cuts, bed sores or wounds
- Frequent bruising
- Soiled linens or clothing
- Unusual weight fluctuations
- Depressed or anti-social behavior
