Nursing home accidents, neglect and abuse are serious, but often unnoticed

Types of Nursing Home Accidents & Abuse
Nursing home abuse can take many forms. Three of the main types of abuse are physical, mental, and sexual. Physical
abuse occurs when a nursing home or caretaker is directly or indirectly
responsible for your loved one's physical injuries or duress. This
might include cuts, bruises, untreated infections, and bedsores.
Mental abuse is more difficult to identify, but just as detrimental to
the health and well-being of your loved one. Common forms of mental abuse
are isolation and threats of physical abuse. Like mental abuse, sexual
abuse is difficult to detect. This type of abuse includes sexual harassment,
unwanted touching, or forced sexual contact.
