When you choose a nursing home for your loved one, it is often because they need continuous, professional care.
They may be vulnerable or frail, and the cost of care can be huge – you should be able to expect that your family member will receive dignified support, without question.
Nursing Home Abuse is Far Too Common
The reality is that nursing home abuse, most often in the form of neglect, is becoming far too common for comfort.

Identify Negligent Nursing Home Care
It can be hard to identify negligent care in nursing home settings, especially if an individual is not fully aware of all that happens around them. High staff turnover, low pay and poor working conditions, combined with slack training can mean that your loved one is neglected. The problems may stem from negligent management, especially if abuse occurs over extended periods of time.
Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
- Unusual or seemingly unexplainable physical injuries such as cuts, bruises, and even more serious injuries such as fractures
- Untended injuries – for example, open wounds or sores, and infections
- Unpleasant odors in room or clothing, or soiled underwear and clothing
- Burns or abrasions
- Dirty bedding, clothing, furniture, and furnishings
- Torn or blood-stained clothing
- Depression or withdrawal that is out of character and not in line with any conditions the individual is living with
- Questionable financial transactions
- Missing personal items
You might not see it right away, but if you have your suspicions, you need to start documenting your concerns from the get-go – your hunch may just be the tip of the iceberg.
