About Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Nursing Home Neglect Lawsuit Information

Approximately 1.6 million people are in nursing homes today. How many people in nursing homes are being abused?

How many can speak about their nursing home abuse experiences or must you be the one to help on their behalf?

It's sad when a society puts their elderly into nursing homes that cannot meet the standard basic needs of its patients. As the population ages, more nursing homes services will be required.

Nursing home patients have a bill of rights but nursing home inspections and violation enforcement are lax.

The first step is recognizing what nursing home abuse and neglect is.

Do You Have A Nursing Home Abuse Case? »

Nursing home abuse can best be described by malnutrition, dehydration, weight loss, bedsores, poor personal hygiene, bruises, cuts, open wounds, burns, falls, bowel impactions, over-sedation, medication errors, physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and more.

Nursing home neglect can be described as failure to assist in personal hygiene; failure to provide food, clothing, and shelter; failure from health and safety hazards; failure to prevent bedsores, malnutrition, and dehydration; failure to provide clean conditions; and failure to allow access to medical services.

The second and third steps are to seek help for the abused patient and report the abuser - the nursing home and if known, the actual health worker who is perpetuating the abuse.

What you cannot do - is nothing.

Nursing home abuse is a crime against the sick, helpless, and elderly.
