Nursing home injuries do not have to be targeted at any one specific resident to qualify as abusive or injurious. As with elder abuse cases, nursing home injuries do not require violence or physical contact. They may take the form of:
- Psychological injury
- Misuse of power of attorney
- Withholding food or medicine that may lead to a wrongful death
Nursing home abuse and neglect may be difficult to prove, because in many cases the victim has lost the ability to describe the abuse or ask for help. Family members should be aware of signs of abuse and neglect, such as:
- Lost weight
- Bed sores
- Unexplained injuries
These can be highly distressing cases. Turn to Joe for answers.
