Physical Abuse

In many situations, our older loved ones require frequent attention that we may unable to provide for a variety of reasons. One popular solution to this dilemma is placing our loved ones in nursing homes or assisted living facilities, where supposedly well-trained and qualified workers can give them the care they need. While most of these facilities are trustworthy establishments, some employ workers who physically abuse the residents. This can leave victims facing potentially debilitating injuries as well as severe emotional trauma, a situation that should not be tolerated.

Types of Physical Abuse

Physically abusive behaviors in nursing homes can take many different forms, but some are more common than others. It is important for families with loved ones in nursing homes and assisted living centers to be able to identify the signs of each of the following forms of physical abuse in these types of facilities:

  • Assault and battery
  • Unnecessary restraints
  • Weight loss

Physical abuse in nursing homes can have lasting consequences on a person’s physical and emotional health. Treating these effects of physical abuse might result in significant expenses, but abuse victims may be entitled to financial compensation to help them with these costs.
