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.
