Signs Your Loved One Experienced Abuse in Their Nursing Facility
Once you admit your elderly loved one into a nursing home, that doesn’t mean they’ve given up all their rights. It also doesn’t mean that you should stop monitoring how they’re treated. No matter how much research you do into a long-term care facility, you could still not recognize the signs of abuse within them. Or there just might not be reports of the abuse or neglect, which leaves you thinking it’s the prefect home for your loved one.
Even after admitting your loved one and getting them settled in, it’s important to maintain vigilance over their care. They might not be able to tell you when they’re suffering from abuse, so you’ll need to look for the signs. Here are some of the most common signs of abuse that you might see to alert you that you might need the help of a nursing home abuse attorney:
- Unexplained bruises, broken bones, and other injuries

- Inability to be alone with your loved one
- Change in finances
- Missing valuables
