What are common forms of nursing home abuse?
There are many different forms of nursing home abuse, but we see the neglect and abuse primarily fit into three main categories:
- Emotional: Insults, threats, isolation, or attempts to frighten a nursing home patient all qualify as abuse.
- Physical: Forced restraint, bodily harm, sexual assault, and more by a nursing home employee are all considered abuse.
- Financial: Stealing money from or taking financial advantage of a nursing home patient is a form of nursing home abuse.
It is absolutely unacceptable for your loved one to experience anything less than the best of care while in a nursing home or assisted living facility.
