Nursing Home Abuse
People are supposed to live out their final days in peace and comfort, but that does not always happen. Sometimes, nursing home residents are the victims of horrifying acts of abuse and neglect.
Acts of nursing home abuse include:
- Physical abuse
- Improper use of restraints
- Sexual assault and abuse
- Verbal abuse, threats, and intimidation
- Theft and financial abuse of the elderly
- And other acts of cruelty
In other cases, nursing home residents can suffer from physical neglect that leads to serious injury or even wrongful death. The line between nursing home abuse, nursing home neglect, and nursing home negligence can be somewhat vague. Nevertheless, they are all against the law.
