I handle situations where a resident or a patient of a facility has either been physically abused, sexually abused or medically neglected.
When a loved one is placed in a nursing home, the expectation is that they will live out the rest of their days being well cared for. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse occurs even in the most highly rated nursing homes. Nursing home abuse comes in many forms, but the most commonly types of abuse are:
• Physical abuse – harmful or offensive touching such as hitting, slapping, kicking, or other physical contact;
• Emotional abuse – yelling, humiliating, terrorizing, or even ignoring a patient constitutes emotional abuse; and
• Financial abuse – stealing money in possession of the victim as well as forgery, embezzlement, or coercing someone to modify legal documents such as a will, bank accounts, or a deed.
