Types of Nursing Home Abuse

Tell us about your situation below:
The most common types of nursing home abuse in Riverside are as below:
- Physical Abuse: Physical abuse is any action toward a patient that can cause physical harm, such as hitting, scratching, biting, shoving, or any other intentional act which causes an injury.
- Sexual Abuse: It involves unwanted sexual attention or exploitation. It occurs most often to patients who are unable to express their desires to be free from such attention, such as with those patients suffering from dementia or other forms of mental incapacitation.
- Emotional abuse: Nursing home staff can sometimes try to exercise authority or punish residents with insults, humiliation, name-calling, threats, and other words and actions that cause emotional trauma.
- Financial abuse: It occurs when a nursing home employee takes advantage of a patient’s financial assets by stealing or otherwise compromising them.
If your loved one has suffered any of these forms of nursing home abuse, the nursing home likely has breached its duty of care and you may be able to pursue legal action. Call one of our Riverside nursing home abuse lawyers today to get justice done.
