What Are the Types of Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect?
Every Texas nursing home resident has certain rights. State law affords an elderly person and anyone else residing in these assisted living facilities the right to live in a safe environment without fear of abuse, neglect, or exploitation.
Unfortunately, this law’s existence doesn’t always prevent abuse or neglect from happening in Houston, TX nursing homes and assisted living facilities. The following are the different types of abuse that can occur in Texas nursing homes or long-term care facilities:
Disgruntled nursing home caregivers may push, shove, or hit residents like your family member. Even a situation in which a nursing home staff member handles a resident too roughly, including gripping or squeezing their arm tightly, may fall into the category of physical abuse.
Psychological and Emotional Abuse
A nursing home employee who belittles, shouts at, or threatens your family member may be said to have engaged in emotional abuse. Caregivers who speak about residents like they’re not present, ignore, or isolate them from others within the nursing home may also be accused of emotional abuse.
Any scenario where your relative is forced to participate in a nonconsensual sexual activity may constitute sexual abuse. Nonconsensual sexual interactions are unwanted and occur without one or both parties’ consent. There are some situations where a resident may have limitations, such as an illness or disability, that prevents them from providing consent.
Someone may take advantage of nursing home residents by stealing money, forging checks, or trying to obtain their nest egg if they have one.
