So often we need extra help when it comes to taking care of our loved ones. There are times our elderly family members require the extra help that the services of a nursing home can provide.
Unfortunately, no amount of research or preparation prior to putting your elderly parent, grandparent or family member into the nursing home prepares you to hear of abuse happening.
ABC News reported that 1 in 3 nursing homes are accused of abusing their residents, which is terribly sad. Abuse can present itself in several different ways:
There are cases where the staff, of the nursing homes, are abusing the residents both physically and sexually.
Other cases are due to lack of prevention of abuse in the nursing homes. Let me explain, the abuse isn’t caused by the staff, but rather other residents. The problem comes in because the staff is aware of it happening, but they aren’t doing anything to prevent the abuse.
This is extremely sobering to hear, especially because in most cases, putting a loved one in a nursing home is a hard decision to begin with.
If you or someone you know feels like they have a case of nursing home abuse, call Franklin Law Group today.
