Nursing home abuse is a sad fact of life. As population increases, so does the amount of senior citizens. It is not an easy situation when you need to find assisted living for a loved one, especially since you are entrusting a facility to care for them.
There are signs to look for if you suspect a loved one is a victim of nursing home abuse and negligence. When people age, their personalities often change, but pay attention to things out of the ordinary. They may be psychologically abused and are having a hard time coping with it.
Physical injuries are a tell tale sign of nursing home abuse. A person should not ignore bed sores, cuts, bruises, etc. They may seem innocuous, but are often signs of negligence.
Staffing at nursing homes is an issue that needs to be dealt with. Proper background and personality checks are sometimes not done, leaving your loved ones in dangerous situations with people who are not in a position to care for them.
