Types of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys in Virginia

As loved ones age, you may be faced with the difficult decision to employ the care of a professional. Although this is an emotionally trying decision, a nursing home may be the best option for yourself and your older family members as they require more specialized attention. When making the choice to move an elderly person into a nursing home, we believe the caregivers in the home will be able to provide attentive, informed care.

Many nursing homes do provide the dedicated assistance we want for our family members. Sadly, there are others that do not offer the care their patients need, and mistreat the elderly to the point of abuse and neglect.

Among the most common types of nursing home abuse are:

  • Negligence
  • Wrongful Death
  • Malnutrition
  • Overdose
  • Bedsores
  • Assault
  • Sepsis
  • Dehydration
  • Aspiration Pneumonia
