Nursing home neglect and abuse takes many forms

Did you know that more than 1 million adults in the United States reside in nursing home and long term care facilities? While it's good to know that these types of facilities exist, as they can help people live a happy life, there are times when things take a turn for the worse. This is due to the fact that nursing home neglect and abuse remain a problem.

When you think about nursing home abuse, what comes to mind? For many, physical abuse is the only thing they can think about. This is one type of abuse, but not the only one to consider. Think about the following as well:

-- Verbal and emotional abuse. This occurs when a patient is subjected to verbal and emotional abuse by a staff member, such as a nurse.

-- Sexual abuse. There are times when a patient is sexually abused by a nursing home staff member or another resident. This can include everything from rape to forced nudity.

-- Financial exploitation. This happens when a nursing facility exploits a resident's finances without the person's knowledge.

If you have reason to believe that a loved one has been abused in a nursing facility, it's time to take action. First off, remove the person immediately and find a facility that knows how to treat its patients with respect. Next, learn more about your legal rights.

At our law firm, we are serious about cracking down on nursing home neglect and abuse. This is why we have helped many family members receive compensation associated with this type of behavior.
