You May Qualify for Compensation If Your Loved One Was Neglected in a Nursing Home.

What You Need To Know

The National Center on Elder Abuse estimates that over three million Americans now live in nursing homes. According to 2010 NORS data, physical abuse comprises 29% of complaints filed by residents. If you or someone you love experienced nursing home abuse, you may be eligible for compensation.

Warning Signs To Look For

Residents with dementia or Alzheimer’s may have difficulty communicating. Others may be hesitant to report abuse or neglect for fear of staff retribution. If you suspect that your loved one may suffer from nursing home neglect or abuse, look for these signs:

A

Victim becomes upset and/or agitated, withdrawn or non-communicative, especially around nursing home staff.

B

Loved one exhibits rapid weight loss, weight gain or symptoms of malnutrition (i.e., mouth sores, dental difficulties, bruises easily, poor wound healing).

C

There are unexplained injuries, such as cuts, bruises or welts healing in different stages.

D

Victim displays sudden/unusual behavior changes (not wanting to be touched, biting, rocking).

E

Your loved one has frequent illness, especially if unreported to family members.

Why File A Nursing Home Abuse Claim?

Nursing homes receiving Medicaid or Medicare funds must comply with federal regulations. According to CFR 483.13, all residents have “the right to be free from verbal, sexual, physical, and mental abuse, corporal punishment, and involuntary seclusion.” Getting a lawyer to file your nursing home abuse claim holds staff accountable for their actions and stops funding to facilities that violate federal standard of care guidelines.

Elder Abuse Affects Nearly 1 in 10 Americans Each Year
