How To Prove Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse and neglect has injured and killed many elderly patients and has left several families in devastation and bereavement. If you believe your family member has been the victim of neglect or abuse in a nursing home, assisted living center, or other residential or long-term care setting, please contact an attorney at Hornsby, Watson, Hornsby & Blackwell in Huntsville today.

Nursing home abuse occurs when a caregiver or employee in a nursing facility knowingly, intentionally, or negligently acts in such a way that causes harm or a risk of harm to adults who are weak, feeble, or otherwise vulnerable. There are many different forms of nursing home abuse.

Nursing home abuse falls into two categories: intentional harm and neglect. The intentional harm includes physical attacks, sexual assaults, emotional abuse and financial abuse. Nursing home abuse or neglect includes failure to provide for basic needs which can result in serious health issues like dehydration, weight loss, overdosing medication, life threatening falls, infections, bedsores, serious skin ulcers, decubitus ulcers, osteomyelitis, septicemia and gangrene.

Elderly or other dependent adults who have been injured as a result of abuse or neglect at the hands of nursing home attendants, in-home caregivers, medical providers or other persons may have a claim against the facility owner. Claims of nursing home abuse do survive the death of the resident. In such cases, families may file a claim on their behalf.

Nursing Home Abuse DEMO VIDEO

The elderly population is very vulnerable to neglect and abuse at the hands of those who are expected to care for them. Since many of our elderly reside in nursing homes, long-term care and assisted-living facilities, much of this nursing home abuse and neglect occurs behind closed doors, leaving the elderly victim to suffer in silence, feeling as if they have little power to communicate or testify as to what has been done to them.

The elderly, mentally ill and the disabled are some of the most vulnerable victims of crime and neglect in society today. In the United States today there are over 36 million citizens over the age sixty-five. As baby boomers come of age, the number of senior citizens will rise. Advances in medical care also indicate that senior citizens are living longer. However, many will live in some type of long-term care facility.

Anyone can report a concern, including residents, relatives, friends, facility staff, legal representatives and other concerned citizens. Complaints may be related to the facility, its employees, or any agency or person who violates the rights, health, safety or welfare of a resident. Both federal and state laws protect any person who files a complaint against a facility from any type of retaliation.

If you see future incidences of abuse, continue to call and report them. Each elder abuse report is a snapshot of what is going on. The more information that you can provide, the better the chance the elder has to get the level of care he or she needs. Older adults can be increasingly isolated from society and, with no school or work to attend, it can be easy for abuse cases to go unnoticed for long periods.

Nursing home negligence is an ongoing, serious problem. The National Center on Elder Abuse estimates that one nursing home patient out of 20 has been the victim of negligence and/or injury, and notes the number may be much higher. Additionally, the National Center reported that 57% of nurse’s aides working in long-term care facilities have admitted to witnessing – and some, even participating in–acts of negligence and abuse against elderly residents.

Experts believe that nursing home abuse is one of the most underreported forms of abuse in the nation today. Often, the victims of these incidents may have no one to turn to for help or no means to report their alleged abusers, which in some cases allows the abuse or neglect to continue. Both abuse and neglect of nursing home patients have the ability to lead to serious injuries or even to death of the resident which is why it is so important to remove those responsible for the abuse as soon as possible.
