Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse is running rampant across a number of facilities in the United States. While we trust our elderly loved ones will be properly taken care of when they are patients in a nursing home, this, unfortunately, is not always the case. Our New York City personal injury attorneys of Lurie, Ilchert, MacDonnell & Ryan LLP refuse to sit back when those who cannot speak up or fight back are abused at the hands of a caregiver, which is why we are relentless in our pursuit of justice for victims of nursing home abuse.

The following are common signs of nursing home abuse, including but not limited to:

  • Unexplained injuries, such as broken bones, bruises, scars, or sprains
  • Lack of necessary medication
  • Lack of proper personal hygiene
  • Withdrawn, angry, or depressed behavior
  • Unexplained STDs or genital infections

Nursing home abuse can occur in more ways than one, as many patients are not only abused in the physical sense, but in the emotional, mental, sexual, and financial sense as well. These injustices cannot stand, and it is important you are particularly vigilant in vetting the right nursing home for your elderly loved one. The moment you feel as though something is off, it is vital you trust your gut and start gathering any evidence of mistreatment or abuse. Our legal team will take it from there.
