Nursing Home Abuse Neglect
Not all abuse needs to be physical. In fact, some of the worst damage can come from staff at nursing home facilities emotionally abusing patients. This can come from yelling, belittling or even ignoring them entirely. This can leave the victims withdrawn, anxious and fearful. When put in charge of accounts, caretakers may embezzle funds, skimming a personal profit off the top or making financial decisions that benefit them but do not benefit the actual owner of the money.

When a person is left to lay in bed for too long, it can cause pressure on joint that are not designed to sustain that type of constant contact. If they are not moved over regularly and looked after, bedsores can develop on these areas; these are also referred to as pressure ulcers and are painful and vulnerable to infection. Proper cleanliness is vital to the health of residents of nursing home facilities. Should the staff fail to keep them clean or fail to clean the environment around them, it can result in serious illness and even death caused by exposure to viruses and bacteria.
