Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Abuse and neglect of the elderly and vulnerable is a major problem in the United States. Often victims are unable to report what has happened because of their mental state, because they are too weak, or because they fear retaliation. Nursing home and rehabilitation facilities have a duty to provide quality care to their patients. Examples of nursing home abuse and neglect include:

  • Physical abuse
  • Rape or sexual assault
  • Bed sores
  • Improper restraints
  • Over-medication
  • Inadequate food and liquids
  • Failure to change bandages, bedding, and undergarments
  • Failure to prevent falls

See examples of our nursing home abuse and neglect cases.
