Examples of nursing home abuse

Nursing home abuse falls into four categories – physical, emotional, financial and sexual abuse.

Here are some examples of nursing home abuse:

  • Assault and battery
  • Lack of food, water and medical care
  • Not responding when a resident calls for help
  • Poor hygiene, bed sores, leaving a person too long between changes of clothes and bedding
  • Infestations including bed bugs
  • Inadequate fall protection, leading to a fall
  • Social isolation, inability to move throughout the facility and interact with others
  • Harassment, threats, emotional abuse, bullying, taunting, psychological mistreatment
  • Preventing family from visiting
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial exploitation, embezzlement
  • Inappropriate use of restraints

It can be hard to identify abuse in a nursing home. The victim may not be able to tell someone else that there is something wrong. They may worry about retaliation. Caregivers may have confused the resident and denied that there is a problem.

When you have a feeling that something is wrong, or you know that abuse is occurring, our Hawaii nursing home abuse lawyers can help.

Compensation for Abuse Victims

If you or a loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse, those responsible may have to pay compensation. The settlement the victim receives may account for many losses including:

  • The cost of medical care needed to treat physical injuries
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional anguish and personal suffering
  • Mental health injury
  • Reduced life expectancy
  • Decline in lifestyle, independence and activities

A person who endures nursing home abuse suffers significant trauma. The compensation they receive should reflect financial losses as well as the suffering that goes along with being an abuse victim.
