Sadly as it is, some victims of nursing home mistreatment suffer from the violent actions of staff members. This kind of inhumane treatment may go on for a short time or in more severe instances, the abuse may continue for the rest of a victim’s life.
Nursing homes and assisted living facilities have a responsibility of providing humane treatment for individuals in their care. All patients have the right to be kept safe from mental and physical harm. They should also receive nourishment, hydration, and required medical care on a daily basis. Unfortunately, many nursing homes allow profit to take precedence over the proper care and treatment of their residents. Facilities often reduce costs by under-staffing or employing poorly trained staff members to care for residents.
Nursing home abuse takes many avenues, including:
- Lack of Proper Hygiene
- Mental Abuse Physical Abuse
