If your aging relative has suffered as a result of nursing home neglect or abuse, don’t delay reaching out and consulting with an experienced Beverly Hills nursing home neglect/abuse attorney.
Nursing Home Neglect
While nursing home neglect lacks the element of intention involved in nursing home abuse, the effects can be just as damaging. The residents of nursing homes require care, and when facilities neglect to provide it, the harm done can be considerable. Common examples of nursing home neglect include:
- Failure to provide adequate nutrition, hydration, or both
- Failure to provide adequate assistance with mobility
- Failure to provide adequate opportunities for socializing
- Failure to maintain a sanitary living environment
- Failure to keep the facility well maintained
Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse means that the act in question was purposefully harmful, which makes the matter that much more egregious. Nursing home abuse can be classified in all the following categories:
- Physical abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Financial abuse
