Philadelphia Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Nursing Home and Retirement Home Abuse

When we place our beloved relatives in the care of a nursing home, retirement home or managed care facility, we assume that professionals will provide the care our loved ones need. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse breaks this trust for thousands of families each year — and recent statistics indicate that up to 30 percent of nursing home abuse may go unreported.

The Forms of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse can take many forms. The most common are physical, emotional and sexual abuse. When a nursing home professional takes advantage of his or her power to withhold care from an individual, extort money or property from that person, or abuse the patient's body, an intolerable and cruel situation can arise. All too often, elderly or ill individuals are left for hours in bed with improper restraints, refused any human contact, or prescribed large amounts of sedatives so they will not notice or report their physical and emotional abuse.Bedsores, dehydration and malnutrition, unexplained bruises, broken bones and sudden withdrawal are all signs of nursing home abuse or neglect.
