Almost 5 Million Elders are Abused Each Year
Nursing home abuse and neglect is a common tragedy in today's society where caring for our elders has become big business. Almost always the nursing home resident suffers from significant physical or mental impairments and is in a poor state of health. They are vulnerable and dependent on the goodwill of the nursing home and its staff for proper care and attention. Proper care, however, is not always what's provided.
Staff negligence can occur for failing to protect the residents from safety or health problems. Neglect and negligence may result in painful decubitus ulcers, infections, dehydration, malnourishment, or an absence of hygiene. Falls occurring in nursing homes can cause life threatening broken bones. Abuse in nursing homes can include actual physical abuse.
