Nursing homes are now an integral part of our life and society. According to statistics, one in two people will live in a nursing home at some point in their life. We entrust these homes and their team with the care of our loved ones. However, they do not always manage to give sufficient care and support, leading, as a consequence, to injuries such as pressure ulcers, malnutrition, dehydration, fractures, and even death. It is common for homes to not offer the care their loved ones deserve. Don’t let this happen to you!
It has been revealed that 24% of nursing home residents experience at least one instance of abuse with the New York State Elder Abuse Prevalence Study suggesting that only 1 in 25 cases are reported. The National Center for Victims of Crime reports that 60% of elder abuse are verbal, 14% are neglect, and 5-10% are physical.

HOW TO IDENTIFY ABUSE IN A NURSING HOME
There are obvious signs and others not so easily detectable because many times the nursing home residents are afraid to talk about the physical, verbal, and mental abuse they are victims of. There are very obvious signs like; cuts, burns, and fractured bones. However, it is important that family, friends, and other visitors pay attention to less obvious signs of neglect and abuse, such as; weight loss, sudden memory loss or periods of forgetfulness, irritation, and anxiety for no apparent reason, bruises, sores, loss of personal possessions, and signs of loneliness and depression.
Frequently, patients are transferred to care centers because they have suffered injuries that require rehabilitation. Because it is difficult to know which injuries are the result of carelessness or neglect and which are not, it is very important for the family to ask and inquire about patient care and supervision to prevent abuse.
