What should I look for if I suspect physical abuse in a nursing home?

Sadly, nursing home abuse is one of the most under-reported forms of abuse. You may trust nursing homes to care for your aging loved ones, but it is extremely important to be aware of and report any signs of abuse. Some of the most common signs of abuse involve unexplained scratches or bruises, sudden weight loss, untreated infections, sudden changes in behavior, and dehydration. Not all warning signs of nursing home abuse are as obvious as others, but these are some early indicators that there is an issue.
