Sexual Abuse

Most nursing home facilities are safe and make residents’ health and safety a top priority. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, as there are instances in which staff members are abusive to residents or allow abuse to occur. One such form of abuse that can be extremely damaging is sexual abuse.

While sexual abuse is a criminal act that can be punished as such, it is also an act that can be punished civilly. In this manner, the victims of sexual abuse in a nursing home can claim financial compensation for the physical, emotional, and financial damages that they have sustained.

Types of Abuse

Sexual abuse can encompass numerous specific behaviors, but these behaviors generally fall into one of two categories. These two categories or types of abuse include:

  • Sexual Harassment
  • Sexual Assault / Rape

Being subjected to such treatment, especially as a nursing home resident who is usually more vulnerable, can cause extreme and lasting harm. Thus, those responsible for causing such abuse or allowing it to happen should be held accountable for their actions.
