What is Nursing Home Abuse?

Elder abuse involves an elder being intentionally abused or unintentionally harmed through neglect. When this abuse happens in a nursing home or an assisted living facility specifically, it is called nursing home abuse. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 45,000 elderly people will be treated in urgent or emergency medical centers each year for injuries caused by an assault, many of which happen in nursing homes.

Warning Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse can be difficult to identify and stop because elderly nursing home residents who suffer from it might not be able to report it. Memory loss, communication struggles, and fear of their abuser can all interfere with their ability to tell others about what happened. For this reason, you must stay alert for any early signs that your loved one is being abused or dangerously neglected in their nursing home facility.

Nursing home abuse warning signs can include:

  • Fear around a specific person
  • Unexplained cuts and bruises
  • Multiple fractures or falls
  • Malnourishment or weight loss
  • Unhygienic living conditions
  • And much more

If you spot signs of nursing home abuse, then you should contact Arizona Department of Health Services or Adult Protective Services to make the report official. We can use this report as the initial groundwork of our claim. If you suspect that imminent physical or sexual abuse could hurt your loved one, then you should call the authorities immediately.

Nursing Home Abuse Caused by Neglect

Many cases of nursing home abuse are actually caused by neglect or negligence, not necessarily outward violence. In this way, the perpetrator is obviously to blame for their misdeeds, but the nursing home that employed them could be to blame, too. Typically, a valid nursing home abuse lawsuit will name the nursing home company as the defendant.

Different types of nursing home negligence that can enable elder abuse can include:

  • Hiring a caretaker without conducting a background check
  • Housing too many residents without enough caretakers
  • Allowing elders to leave the facility without supervision
  • Not keeping any security detail or measures

Phoenix Nursing Home Abuse FAQ

Are some people in nursing homes more vulnerable to abuse?

Elders who live with mental or physical impairments are more vulnerable to nursing home abuse. Oftentimes, perpetrators target residents with dementia because they usually have no means of communication that could be used to report the attack.

What is an ombudsman?

Nursing home ombudsmen are meant to field and help investigate reports of neglect or abuse in the facility. While the purpose of the ombudsman is to help the family resolve the complaint with the facility, they are not always able to do so, especially if the resident has been seriously injured. If the ombudsman is not able to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction, call our law firm.

Can I only file a nursing home abuse claim if someone was arrested?

Civil nursing home abuse claims can be filed without any related criminal charges. Although criminal charges can help validate a claim and build an argument, they are not legally necessary.
