Abuse

Elder Abuse can take various forms, all of which can be dangerous and devastating for elderly individuals. Physical abuse, emotional abuse, and financial exploitation can be tremendously taxing on elderly individuals, especially if they are in fragile or declining states of health. Abuse, in some forms, may be criminal offenses. However, victims and families must pursue compensation through civil courts, regardless of whether criminal charges are filed against wrongdoers.

Neglect

Neglect by nursing home employees can have devastating consequences. Neglecting basic needs, hygiene, or emotional needs of residents are common examples of nursing home neglect. Ongoing neglect can cause emotional and physical injuries – including bed sores – and neglecting any medical needs of residents may prove fatal.

Administrators & Facilities

In many cases, nursing home administrators or the facilities themselves can be held responsible for their neglect. Ultimately, it is their responsibility to monitor the conduct of their employees and to ensure that residents are kept free from preventable harm. Any failure to reasonably prevent or stop abuse and neglect is a form of negligence.
