Elderly citizens are some of the most vulnerable people in our society. Sadly, for this reason, they are often treated poorly or taken advantage of. Too many elders suffer abuse, neglect, financial fraud, or even wrongful death when they are entrusted to the care of nursing homes and senior care facilities.
Examples of nursing home abuse and neglect include but is not limited to the following:
- Physical abuse*
- Improper restraints
- Overmedication or failure to dispense medication
- Theft of money or property
- Failure to clean and bathe properly
- Failure to provide adequate food and liquids
- Lack of monitoring that results in a fall
*If you suspect your loved one is suffering from physical abuse, it is important to alert the police.
