Five Ways to Spot Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing homes and assisted living facilities are intended to provide elderly men and women a place where they can live and feel safe during the golden years of their lives. In most cases, the majority of residents in these homes are unable to take care of themselves on their own and need help with daily activities such as walking, bathing, and getting dressed. Unfortunately, some nursing home employees choose to abuse nursing home patients instead of creating a warm and welcome environment.

If you have found your loved one has been abused emotionally, physically, or sexually by a nursing home employee, you need to hold him or her responsible. You need to fight for financial compensation today. Contact the Oklahoma personal injury lawyers of the Abel Law Firm today at (405) 239-7046 and schedule a free consultation.

Spotting Abuse

The majority of nursing home abuse cases go unnoticed because the victims feel too threatened or scared to tell anyone. When visiting your loved ones in nursing homes, you should be aware of his or her actions. Here are five things to look for:

  • Unexplained bruises, broken bones, or lacerations
  • Suffers from depression or anxiety
  • Acting withdrawn or abnormally quiet
  • Torn clothing or damaged property inside his or her room
  • Unexplained death
