Nursing Home Physical Abuse
Is Your Loved One Being Abused In Their Nursing Home?
People from any and all walks of life can be affected by physical abuse, but elderly people are some of the most vulnerable in the nation. They face increased risk because of their reliance and dependence on other people to complete basic daily tasks. In most cases, the abuser or abusers are members of their family or their caregiver, but can also be acquaintances or other people who would interact with them during the course of the day. No matter who is committing the abuse, it’s important to get your loved one the help they need as soon as possible.

Signs of Abuse
Far too often, the victim of abuse can’t or won’t talk about the abuse, so it can fall on their loved one’s shoulders to pick up on the signs. Some of the most common signs to keep an eye out for include:
- Unexplained hair or tooth loss
- Internal injuries
- Unexplained burns
- Rope burn
- Unexplained sprains, dislocated joints, fractured bones, etc.
- Delays in treatment
- Receiving treatment from a number of medical facilities (could indicate an attempt to cover up a pattern of abuse)
- Implausible or conflicting injury explanations
- Unexplained injuries
