What are the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect?

When you help a loved one move into a nursing home, you expect that they'll receive nothing but top-notch treatment around the clock. While this typically happens, don't be blind to the fact that nursing home abuse and neglect remains a major problem.

Don't assume that the nursing home facility is doing everything that's required of them. Instead, keep a close eye on everything to ensure that your loved one is receiving the care they require and deserve.

Here are several of the most common signs of nursing home abuse and neglect:

  • Physical injuries: There are times when a person suffers a physical injury due to no fault of the nursing home. Conversely, there are times when an injury could be the result of abuse or neglect. It's important to personally investigate any physical injury.
  • Unanswered questions: Nursing home staff should have answers to all your questions. If they don't, something may be wrong. You have the right to ask questions and receive answers, so don't stop pushing until you get what you want.
  • Negative feedback from your loved one: Your elderly parent may tell you they don't want a particular staff member to care for them. This could be a red flag that something is amiss with the care they are receiving.

These are far from the only signs of nursing home abuse and neglect, but they're among the most common. If you recognize these signs, it may lead you toward others.

If you suspect your loved one isn't being treated with the respect they deserve, get serious about finding out what's going on and implement a plan of action. This could lead you to uncover some form of abuse or neglect, which often calls for you to learn more about your legal rights to seek justice for your vulnerable loved one.
