Nursing home abuse and neglect is a major problem that many of our senior citizens are faced with on a daily basis. The primary goal of a nursing home is to help elderly people in need. However, in some cases, these care centers are often blamed for exploitation, mistreatment, and abuse.
Elder abuse in nursing homes can be physical (including sexual) and emotional. In other cases, it is routine negligence and neglect from the caregiver. It is therefore important that you visit your loved one to check up on them and see if they are receiving the right care and love you signed them up for. To be sure if your loved one has been abused or neglected, to name a few, lookout for signs of dehydration, malnutrition, strangulation, injuries with restraint marks and unexplained fractures.
If you suspect that your loved one is a victim of a nursing home abuse and neglect, it is important that you alert the law enforcement agency immediately! You should also contact a lawyer to determine whether you or your loved one has a genuine case of nursing home neglect or abuse.
