Types of Nursing Home Abuse
Abuse can occur even without physical contact. If a patient is made to feel belittled in any way, has his or her rights violated, or is simply ignored, it can greatly impact the patient's quality of life. If this has occurred to your loved one, our team can help protect his or her rights.
Unfortunately, because nursing home residents are dependent on others for their care and treatment, abandonment and various types of negligence can result in significant injury, pain, and suffering. If your loved one was simply neglected by his or her care provider, let us help.
If your loved one was struck, physically restrained, assaulted, squeezed, shoved, or physically abused in some other way, we strongly encourage you to contact local law enforcement officials to stop such abuse immediately. Then, you can consult with our attorneys regarding how best to move forward.
Any type of non-consensual sexual activity is considered abuse. Thus, while rape and molestation may be the most obvious examples of sexual abuse, other types of sexual abuse exist as well, such as being coerced into witnessing a sexual act or being photographed for sexually explicit purposes.
