Elder Mistreatment and Nursing Home Abuse

Below are some of the most common kinds of abuse that we come across as elder abuse personal injury lawyers. Mistreatment of nursing home residents by caregivers can involve a number of situations that result in physical, emotional, or financial harm to the elder adult. Abuse and neglect can include any of the types of mistreatment listed below:

  • Abandonment, such as desertion by the person responsible for providing care to a vulnerable adult
  • Failure of the caregiver to provide articulated or expected care and services to the resident, whether intentional or negligent
  • Malnourishment or dehydration
  • Any untreated medical condition
  • A caregiver’s attitude of indifference to the resident’s physical needs
  • Failure to maintain a clean living environment for the resident
  • Financial abuse and exploitation of the resident’s resources including misappropriation of funds and illegal or improper use of the resident’s accounts
  • Infliction of physical pain
  • Over-medication
  • Inappropriate use of chemical or physical restraints
  • Sexual abuse or rape
  • Emotional abuse, such as verbal assaults or threats
