The Multifaceted Impact of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse impacts the victim and their entire family in various ways. The financial cost of switching facilities quickly or obtaining specialized care for the abused are burdensome. This is to say nothing of the emotional trauma suffered by victims and loved ones, as well as physical injuries, which often need long-term medical care.

Victims of nursing home abuse also face severe psychological injury, from loss of trust to depression and anxiety disorders. These psychological damages sometimes have a more lasting impact than even the physical injuries, affecting quality of life and overall well-being. Given the relative fragility of its victims, nursing home abuse can also shorten life expectancy, robbing both the elderly and their families of precious time together.

Types and Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse manifests in multiple forms—financial abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, verbal abuse, and neglect. Each type comes with its own devastating set of consequences and signs.

The signs of abuse include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Unexplained decrease in standard of living or loss of funds
  • Unexplained bruises, bone breaks, or wounds
  • Sudden mood changes or social withdrawal
  • Bedsores, unexplained health problems, and other signs of medical neglect

While individual abusers are of course responsible for the harm they cause, the blame for your loved one’s harm also lies with the system that allows abusers to exist. The nursing home company must take responsibility for employing abusers to ‘care’ for your loved one. A drive for profits often leads to inappropriate employee screening, inadequate training, and understaffing. These factors combine to create an environment where abuse is likely to occur and go unnoticed. Bad actors thrive in such settings, perpetuating cycles of abuse and harm.
