What Are the Types of Nursing Home Abuse?

According to the Texas Attorney General, nursing home abuse includes intimidation, humiliation, harassment, threatening, slapping, kicking, and verbal abuse. This is done whether or not the person can hear or understand what they’re doing. Abuse can take many forms. The main types of abuse include:

  • Physical. Using physical force as punishment or moving people too roughly are forms of physical abuse.
  • Emotional. Staff members who speak to your loved one with foul language, undermine them, or acts like they aren’t there, are emotionally abusing them. They can also cause psychological damage through isolating your loved one and not letting them see anyone or participate in activities in the home.
  • Financial. Exploitation through stealing cash, heirlooms, and forging checks are all possible versions of financial abuse. Some may try to take advantage of those with memory loss or reduced cognitive function and your loved one may not realize what’s happening.
  • Sexual. Sexual abuse can also occur in nursing homes. This is when anything of a sexual nature occurs that doesn’t have the express consent of the parties involved.

Nursing home neglect can also occur where the home isn’t equipped to provide your loved one with the care they need and deserve. The Texas Attorney General states that neglect occurs when the caregiver fails to provide goods or services that the senior needs to avoid physical and emotional pain. This could be from not having enough staff to attend to everyone, or staff that doesn’t have the training to attend to your loved one’s needs.
