Why is Abuse Present in Nursing Homes?
The tragic truth is that the majority of nursing homes behave as an industry that houses our elderly loved ones at the lowest cost possible.
- Staff with minimal qualifications
- Staffing shortages
- Insufficient training
- Low wages and high turnover
- Insufficient medical supplies and equipment
- Inconsistent reporting and regulation
Ultimately, this creates serious and even life-threatening problems for nursing home residents: failure to manage pain effectively, hospitalization, dehydration, and even starvation.
What are the Signs of Nursing Home Abuse?
The following are some of the early warning signs of nursing home abuse:
- Unexplained bruises, cuts, burns, sprains, or fractures in various stages of healing
- Bedsores or frozen joints
- Unexplained venereal disease or genital infections
- Sudden changes in behavior
- Staff refusing to allow visitors to see resident or delays in allowing visitors to see resident
- Staff not allowing the resident to be alone with the visitor
- Residents being kept in an over-medicated state or even denied their medication
- Loss of resident’s possessions
- Sudden large withdrawals from bank accounts or changes in banking practices
- Abrupt changes in a will or other financial documents
- Deliberate lack of communication between caregivers and patient’s family members
Many cases are thought to go unreported not only in Pennsylvania because a loved one may fear disclosing information about their treatment or may simply not have the physical and/or mental capabilities to do so.
