Nursing Home Abuse

Although most families choose to place elderly or disabled loved ones in nursing homes because they believe the individuals will receive better care, an astounding 30% of nursing homes have been cited for abusive behavior. Nursing home workers should provide high-quality, respectful care to their residents, but unfortunately, some staff members participate in abusive treatment that can cause serious physical and psychological harm for elderly or disabled individuals. In these situations, victims of nursing home abuse in Louisville and their families should talk to the Sampson Law Firm to learn more about their legal rights and options.

Common Types of Nursing Home Abuse

There are many actions that could constitute nursing home abuse, but they generally fall under one of four primary categories. The broad classifications of nursing home abuse include:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Emotional or psychological abuse

Sadly, victims of this mistreatment are often threatened into silence by their abusers. Thus, it is important for family members to be able to recognize the signs of nursing home abuse so that they can put a stop to this unacceptable behavior as soon as possible.
