Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
In many cases the victims of nursing home abuse are either unable or unwilling to inform their loved ones about the circumstances they are facing. Sadly, elderly patients commonly suffer from Alzheimer's disease or another neurological disorder which may prevent effective communication. Others may simply be too embarrassed to tell anyone.
For these reasons, it is up to family members to spot the signs of abuse, which can include the following:
- Delays before being allowed to see the resident when on an unannounced visit
- Unexplained injuries signaling abuse which can include burns, bruises, or fractures
- Rapid weight loss signaling poor nutrition or dehydration
- Poor hygiene, bed sores, and other untreated medical conditions which demonstrate neglect
- Emotional withdrawal, depression, or other sudden changes in behavior
