What Constitutes Nursing Home Abuse?

Thinking about our loved ones suffering abuse in nursing homes is a terrible thing to consider, but unfortunately, it is a reality that many face every day with little or no help. Abuse takes numerous forms, and it’s important to recognize what might constitute abusive practices, as this recognition is the first step toward putting an end to abuse in nursing homes. Additionally, at the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we believe that Connecticut residents should be aware of what constitutes nursing home abuse so they will know when or if they should take legal action and hold other parties responsible for this mistreatment.

Examples of Nursing Home Abuse

There are many ways that a nursing home staff member may be abusive toward someone you love. For instance, the following are among the more common forms of abuse:

  • Malnutrition
  • Bed Sores
  • Physical Abuse (hitting/shoving/etc.)
  • Psychological Abuse (verbal abuse/neglect/humiliation/etc.)
  • Sexual Abuse (assault/harassment)
  • Theft and Fraud

Each of these forms of abuse can be traumatic to endure and may cause both emotional and physical trauma. But you can seek compensation for this injustice with the help of an experienced and understanding attorney.
