Placing a loved one in a nursing home is one of the most excruciating decisions family members can make. They deserve to have confidence in that nursing home to take proper care of the loved one.
But nursing home abuse and neglect is a problem, and it’s one that too often simmers in silence. Such acts must not go unpunished.
Signs of abuse include
- unexplained bruises,
- broken bones,
- signs of restraints,
- broken eyeglasses, or
- obvious fear of certain staff members.
Signs of neglect include
- malnutrition, or
- incorrect medical administration.
