  • Requesting information on the facility and caregivers, including training, background checks, and previous violations

Why Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Occurs

Nursing home abuse and neglect may constitute criminal acts. A nursing home abuse lawyer can report what happened to the appropriate agencies. You and your loved one have the right to pursue damages when a nursing home fails to uphold its duty to protect a resident from harm.

There is no excuse for abusing the most vulnerable citizens.  Often times neglect may be caused by:

  • Inadequate training
  • Insufficient staff that leads to a high caregiver-to-resident ratio
  • Incomplete background checks
  • Negligent supervision of residents, leading to violence or abuse between residents
  • High employee turnover

Warning Signs: How to Recognize Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Abusive caregivers tend to gravitate toward victims who are socially isolated or who are physically or cognitively challenged. That is why our nursing home abuse attorneys want you to be aware of the warning signs of abuse, including:

  • Unexplained bruises, burns, or falls
  • Dirty, unkempt appearance and living space
  • Missing money or valuables
  • Appearing fearful or agitated when abuser is present
  • Withdrawing from favorite activities or refusing a telephone or in-person visit

If you suspect that your loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, do not wait. It is better to be proactive than regret inaction if tragedy strikes.
