Common Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse can manifest in various ways. While physical abuse can be obvious from the onset, other forms—such as emotional abuse and financial exploitation—can be much more difficult to detect, making it all the more crucial to recognize common signs of nursing home abuse. 

Some red flags that can indicate nursing home abuse include: 

  • Sudden changes in behavior or mood
  • Unsanitary living conditions or lack of personal hygiene 
  • Unexplained injuries, such as bruises, cuts, or broken bones
  • Missing personal items or unauthorized financial transactions
  • Withdrawal from social activities or fear around certain staff members

If you suspect that a loved one is being abused, seeking sound counsel is a top priority. (850) 215-7777 to schedule a free consultation.

What Is Nursing Home Abuse in Florida?

No one deserves to be mistreated, particularly in life's most vulnerable stages. Sadly, many elderly residents suffer nursing home abuse every year, which is why it’s so imperative to take swift legal action as soon as possible. In Florida, nursing home abuse entails any intentional or negligent act that causes harm or loss to an elderly resident. Recognizing the various types of nursing home abuse is critical to protecting your loved ones from further harm. 

Common types of nursing home abuse include

  • Physical Abuse: This form of abuse involves the intentional use of force on an elderly resident that results in physical harm or pain, such as improper use of restraints, slapping, kicking, shoving, or pushing. 
  • Sexual Abuse: Sexual abuse occurs when a caretaker engages in non-consensual sexual contact with an elderly resident.
  • Emotional Abuse: Emotional abuse, also referred to as psychological abuse, involves causing emotional pain, fear, or distress to an elderly resident. Although this type of abuse may not leave visible signs, it can be just as detrimental, if not more so. Examples include verbal assaults, insults, threats, humiliation, isolating residents from social activities or peers, and belittling.
  • Financial Abuse: Financial abuse (economic abuse) entails taking advantage of an elderly resident’s financial resources without their informed consent or knowledge. Examples include theft, fraud, or exploitation of an elderly resident’s assets or property.
  • Elder Neglect: Neglect occurs when a caretaker fails to meet the basic needs, such as food, shelter, and medical care, of an elderly resident.
