Nursing Home Abuse & Negligence
Elder abuse is the intentional harm or mistreatment of an elderly person
who is considered vulnerable due to health problems or cognitive decline
by an individual entrusted with their care. Neglect cases are also classified
as elder abuse. According to the website for the National Center on Elder
Abuse, there is evidence that these cases may be severely unreported.
One study suggested that only 1 in 14 cases of elder abuse are brought
to the attention of authorities. Fortunately, state Adult Protective Services
(APS) agencies report that this number may be on the rise.
Elder abuse can take many different forms, including:
- Financial abuse
- Physical abuse
- Psychological abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Sexual abuse
With approximately 14 million American adults aged 65 and older suffering
from a disability, the number of potential victims is large. Disabled
elderly men and women should be able to enjoy a high quality of life in
care facilities. They should be made to feel safe, and they should be
treated with dignity and compassion. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
