Types of Nursing Home Abuse
There are several forms of nursing home abuse. They include physical, emotional, sexual, and financial abuse as well as neglect.
Physical abuse is the most common form of nursing home abuse and includes pushing, striking, slapping, kicking or otherwise harming a resident’s body without their consent or permission.
Emotional abuse can involve verbal harassment such as name-calling or intimidation.
Sexual abuse is any unwanted touching of an elderly person by another individual.
Financial exploitation involves theft or misuse of an elderly person’s funds or property without their knowledge.
Neglect happens when a caregiver fails to provide basic needs like food and water or medical attention. It also refers to not providing social interaction for those in need of it.
Signs of Abuse
It is important to be aware of the signs and symptoms of nursing home abuse, as they may not always be obvious. Signs include unexplained injuries or bruises, changes in behavior (such as withdrawal from activities), sudden weight loss, fearfulness around a caregiver or facility staff members, or lack of cleanliness or adequate hygiene.
The Illinois Nursing Home Care Act deems all types of nursing home abuse to be illegal and immoral. Residents of nursing homes are entitled to receive respectful and compassionate treatment.
