The harmful results of nursing home abuse can range from discomfort, to serious injury, and even wrongful death. Elderly residents are often victimized because they are physically or mentally unable to communicate that they are suffering from abuse. Understaffed facilities or insufficiently trained employees can also contribute to elder abuse cases. Abuse is often difficult to detect, and may be missed if a loving family member is not watching out for their elder relative.
IQ Nursing Homes now offers an updated overview of emotional nursing home abuse, physical nursing home abuse, and sexual nursing home abuse, as well as detailed information about the signs and symptoms of each type of abuse. For example, after reading a summary of emotional abuse, site visitors can learn about the warning signs that a nursing home resident who is suffering may exhibit, such as mood swings and strange behaviors. Education and awareness are the best tools to defend against nursing home abuse, and anyone who is concerned about the possibility of abuse should consider reviewing these resources.
