Physical Abuse in Nursing Homes
When you put your parent, sibling or other loved one in a nursing home, the last thing you imagined is that they might be the victim of physical abuse. While physical attacks are not common in nursing homes, they do occur. Nursing home patients may suffer physical abuse in a number of distinct ways:
- Nursing home patients may be physically or sexually assaulted by other patients. Nursing homes have a duty to protect their patients from harm.
- Nursing home staff may physically or sexually assault a patient.
- Nursing home staff may allow a patient to struggle unnecessarily because the staff member is impatient and irritable. Intentionally failing to respond to a patient’s request to use the restroom facilities, get a glass of water or obtain other necessary care is a form of abuse and should not be tolerated.
