Is Your Loved One Experiencing Nursing Home Abuse?

When you’re visiting your loved one in their home, you may be able to see signs that indicate abuse or neglect is occurring. If you go during less common visiting hours, you can get a better idea of what the regular care is like. Speaking with other families and residents about their care can also give you information about the nursing home’s care.

Some signs that can indicate abuse and neglect include:

  • Injuries. Your loved one may have consistent injuries that can indicate abuse. This can range from minor injuries like bruises to significant injuries like broken bones. If your loved one always has injuries and you cannot get a reasonable explanation for what happened, then abuse may be occurring.
  • Illnesses. If your loved one always seems to have a cough, the common cold, or gets the flu on a regular basis, then the nursing home may not have strong protocols to prevent the spread of illnesses. This can also indicate that they aren’t regularly disinfecting to kill germs, either.
  • Weight Loss. Rapid weight loss could mean your loved one isn’t getting regular meals or enough nutrition. They may also be dehydrated. Both these conditions can be dangerous for your loved one’s health.
  • Dirty Bedsheets/Clothes. Residents should have clean sheets and clothes every day. If you notice that your loved one is in soiled sheets or clothes, then they aren’t getting the attention and care they need on a daily basis.
  • Lack of Personal Hygiene. You may notice that your loved one hasn’t bathed or they haven’t had help with brushing teeth or hair. These signs are also indicators that they’re in a neglectful environment.
  • Messes. Accidents happen. But if the nursing home needs to clean something, it should be done as quickly as possible. Letting messes sit can mean germs can spread and makes an unfavorable living environment.
