San Bernardino Personal Injury Attorney
Seeking Justice in Nursing Home Abuse Cases
Nursing home abuse is a serious problem in the United States. Sadly, may people cannot imagine abuse towards an elderly relative and may not notice it when it is happening to their loved ones. Possibly one of the most heinous types of abuse, elder abuse, continues partly due to the fact that many elderly cannot defend themselves from unscrupulous individuals. If nursing home abuse is not stopped immediately, it can lead to serious injuries and even death in some cases.
Some of the most common forms of nursing abuse include: medical neglect, physical neglect, inappropriate restraint, inappropriate medication, emotional abuse, financial abuse and even sexual abuse. Drugging an elderly person so that they will "be quiet" when the drugs are not part of their standard program is considered inappropriate medication. Lack of training and skill may lead to some of these types of abuse. In many cases the nursing home is understaffed and instead of utilizing proper methods of handling the elderly, a staff member will turn to abuse. There is no excuse for using physical or emotional abuse as a way to control an elderly individual.
