What Constitutes Nursing Home Abuse?

Nursing home abuse or negligence is defined as an intentional or unintentional act that causes harm to a resident. Nursing home abuse encompasses various behaviors, including (but not limited to):

  • Physical Abuse

    Physical abuse in nursing homes refers to any intentional physical harm or pain inflicted on a resident. It encompasses various acts, such as hitting, slapping, pushing, and the inappropriate use of drugs, restraints, or confinement.

    Common signs of physical abuse in nursing homes include:

    • Unexplained injuries, such as bruises, cuts, burns, or fractures
    • Frequent visits to the emergency room
    • Inconsistent explanations of injuries
    • Obvious signs of restraint, such as rope marks

    In nursing homes, physical harm is often accompanied by emotional trauma, which serves to worsen the harmful effects of the abuse on elderly victims. Our nursing home abuse attorneys understand the gravity of these situations and strive relentlessly to bring the culprits to justice, ensuring the safety and well-being of our clients in Marianna.

  • Sexual Abuse

    Sexual abuse in nursing homes constitutes any form of non-consensual sexual contact, behavior, or exploitation of a nursing home resident. It could range from inappropriate touching to severe offenses like rape. Indicators can include:

    • Sudden changes in behavior
    • Unexplained sexually transmitted diseases
    • Bruises in genital areas
    • Any reports of sexual abuse by the resident

    Sexual abuse is a deep violation of individuals’ bodily autonomy that leaves profound psychological scars on victims. Our nursing home abuse lawyers are committed to holding perpetrators accountable for their heinous acts against the elderly.

  • Emotional Abuse

    Psychological or emotional abuse is any action that inflicts distress, mental pain, or fear in a resident. It can be verbal (such as yelling, threats, and constant criticism) or non-verbal, such as ignoring the resident, isolating them from others, or denying them basic needs.

    Although signs of emotional abuse can be difficult to detect, some common indicators include:

    • Sudden mood swings
    • Unexplained fear or anxiety
    • Changes in behavior
    • Reluctance to communicate could indicate such abuse

    The emotional toll this form of abuse takes on victims can be devastating, and our Marianna nursing home negligence lawyers are dedicated to uncovering these hidden abuses and advocating for the rights of elders to live a life of dignity and respect.

  • Financial Abuse

    Also known as economic abuse, financial abuse in nursing homes entails the illegal or unauthorized use of a resident's funds, properties, or assets without their consent. It can manifest in various forms, such as:

    • Forging signatures
    • Misusing power of attorney
    • Stealing money or personal belongings
    • Coercing or deceiving into signing financial documents

    Although identifying financial abuse can be challenging, common signs include irregularities in financial transactions, sudden changes in a will or estate, or unexplained disappearances of funds or valuables are common signs. It’s imperative to consult with a nursing home abuse lawyer who can help detect nursing home abuse and pursue justice for victims.

What Is Nursing Home Neglect?

In a nursing home setting, neglect occurs when professional facilities fail to accommodate a resident's basic needs, such as caring for their physical and mental health. This form of elder abuse can encompass a range of oversights, such as:

  • Inadequate attention to personal hygiene, nutritional needs, or medical conditions
  • Failure to provide proper clothing and shelter
  • Lack of assistance with necessary tasks

Common signs of nursing home neglect in Florida include:

  • Malnutrition
  • Bedsores
  • Frequent infections
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Unattended personal hygiene
  • Complaints of being neglected

Although neglect can be easily overlooked, it’s a serious form of elder abuse that can lead to severe health consequences and diminish elderly residents’ quality of life. Discussing your case with a trusted Marianna nursing home negligence lawyer is important, as we can help identify warning signs of neglect, safeguard your rights, and protect against further harm while fighting tirelessly to fortify your claims with sufficient evidence.

    "They treated me like family."
    Perry & Young Law Firm represented me with my discrimination case. Mrs. Jeanetta Brown conducted my intake and was a great pleasure to work with! From the beginning of initial contact to the end of my settlement, they treated me like family. The defendants wanted to treat me as a nuance, but my Perry & Young Law Firm didn’t treat me as such and made sure I was fairly compensated. I appreciate their patience, handling my case with care, and respect!
