Signs of Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

How can I tell if my loved one is being abused or neglected in their nursing home?

In many cases, nursing home residents are unable to speak up when abuse or neglect is occurring, either out of fear, confusion, or physical impairment. Because of this, it is absolutely critical that family members and loved ones are able to identify the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect so that they can take immediate action when suspicious activity occurs.

Examples of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Some of the most common signs of nursing home abuse and neglect include:

  • Bedsores
  • Unexplained bruises, cuts, and other injuries
  • Falls and other accidents
  • Infections
  • Lack of facility upkeep
  • Soiled or stained bedsheets and clothing
  • Poor staff-to-resident ratio
  • Dehydration and/or malnutrition
  • Over- or under-medication
  • Medical errors/malpractice
  • Sudden changes in behavior or mood
  • Residents appearing unwilling to speak in staff’s presence
  • Unexplained changes to a will
  • Large withdrawals from bank accounts
  • Elopement
  • Wandering

What is the difference between abuse and neglect in a nursing home?

Remember, nursing home abuse can take many forms. It may be physical, emotional, financial, or sexual in nature. Nursing home neglect, on the other hand, typically occurs when staff members simply fail to provide an adequate level of care for nursing home residents.

Either form of nursing home malpractice can have devastating results. Do not wait to contact authorities if you suspect your loved one is a victim.
