Nursing Home Abuse: You are Never Helpless

Many individuals who suffer from nursing home abuse believe they are helpless in the situation; this is not true. Regardless if a situation happened – or almost happened – you should still seek justice. If your loved one tells you about a situation that occurred while he or she was in a nursing home facility, the law may allow you to seek justice on their behalf.

There are a variety of reasons why you may believe you should seek justice against a nursing home facility. Some of those reasons include:

  • Neglect
  • Unlawful Practices
  • Cleanliness
  • Unprofessional Staff
  • Physical Abuse

It’s difficult to talk about, but another reason why you may seek justice against a retirement facility is because of sexual abuse. This unlawful act does occur inside of nursing home facilities. Remember that any type of contact without the consent of an elderly individual is considered sexual elder abuse, and it is punishable by law. Many individuals do not understand that this type of abuse is not limited to physical sex acts. The type of material an elderly individual is shown could also be considered abuse, depending on what the material entails.
