What Does Abuse And Neglect Look Like?

Nursing home abuse can lead to devastating injuries and even death. Injuries to elderly residents at nursing homes can be caused by abuse or neglect. What is the difference?

Abuse is any treatment that results in harm, pain or suffering to the elderly person. This can include physical abuse, sexual abuse, mental abuse, emotional abuse, financial abuse or any other behavior that results in harm to the person. This can include verbal threats, intimidation or isolation.

Neglect is when a nursing home provider fails to properly care for the elderly resident. This can include failure to provide medical care, prevent malnutrition or dehydration, failure to provide adequate clothing or shelter, or assist in personal hygiene.

Medication Errors

Medication errors can cause serious complications and even death for elderly patients. We take this issue very seriously. We will investigate to determine if a medication mistake occurred and explore all options to see what remedies are available to help you and your loved ones find recovery.
