Home/Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect



Personalized Care for Injured Senior Citizens and Their Family

Nursing home residents will often enter nursing homes if and when they’re no longer able to properly take care of themselves at home. The nursing home staff is expected to keep these senior citizens healthy for as long as they possibly can.

Unfortunately, staff members will sometimes harm the senior citizens that they were hired to aid, through various acts of physical, emotional and financial harm – and even, sexual molestation or abuse can take place.

This leaves nursing home residents with bad injuries, emotional trauma, or sometimes it can also claim their life.

What Types of Injuries Are Caused by Nursing Home Abuse?

Some of the common injuries that can be sustained by a victim of nursing home abuse are, but are not limited to the following: 

  • Bedsores.
  • Dehydration.
  • Incorrectly diagnosed illnesses.
  • Infection.
  • Malnutrition.
  • Medication errors.
  • Unsanitary, or otherwise poor and unhygienic conditions.


What are the Signs of Nursing Home Abuse in Senior Citizens?

  • Change in mood.
  • Change in diet.
  • Change in overall energy level.
  • Bruises, cuts, scars, and red spots.
  • Unhygienic conditions and odors.
