Nursing Home Negligence
Each year tens of thousands of senior citizens in the U.S. are abused, neglected and exploited in nursing homes and other elder care facilities. Many victims are physically frail, mentally vulnerable, and depend on others to meet their most basic needs. The issue is so widespread that legislatures in all 50 states have passed some form of elder abuse prevention laws.
Knowing the warning signs of abuse is a first step toward protecting elderly friends or relatives. Sometimes residents of care facilities may sustain physical injuries from abuse, such as bruising. In other instances, neglect can cause dehydration and malnutrition or infections from untreated bedsores. If you believe someone is being neglected in a care facility, then there is a chance their fellow residents are also under threat from this neglect.
