Helping Victims of Nursing Home Neglect & Mistreatment
Sometimes, our loved ones require a level of care and medical attention that is impossible to receive outside of a professionally managed setting. In these cases, we often must entrust the care of our loved ones to others. Unfortunately, the people that we trust to care for our loved ones may either intentionally or unintentionally injure or neglect the very people for which they are supposed to care for.
Nursing home abuse or neglect is unacceptable. It is a serious and devastating issue that affects the most vulnerable members of our society, and the victims and their families may be entitled to substantial compensation.

Identifying Nursing Home Abuse/Neglect
Nursing home abuse occurs when the employees of a nursing home facility intentionally mistreat the residents of the facility. Examples of this type of abuse may be physical or verbal and can often cause lasting physical or psychological harm.
Nursing home neglect may be more difficult to spot. Neglect occurs when the nursing home does not meet the standard of care it is supposed to meet for its residents. Examples of nursing home neglect could be not checking on a resident, failure to provide meals, missed doses of medication, and similar actions of neglect. Some residents may be hesitant to speak up or complain about nursing home neglect, as it is sometimes difficult to appreciate that the staff of such facilities is there to provide comprehensive care.
Some of the tell-tale signs of nursing home neglect or abuse include:
- Open wounds or cuts
- Resident complaints
- Unsanitary conditions
- The resident becomes withdrawn or agitated
- Physical restraints
- Unexplained injuries
- Unexplained or unexpected death of a resident
