Signs of Elder Abuse

Nursing home abuse is exceedingly complex, both in terms of injuries and legality. While some victims may suffer from “hidden crimes,” other abuse victims’ injuries are more grossly apparent. The nursing home abuse lawyers at the Shiner Law Group identify several types of common nursing home abuse cases under the umbrellas of physical, emotional, financial, and sexual abuse:

  • Bed injuries, such as pressure ulcers.
  • Unexplained bruising, bleeding, dislocations, or broken bones.
  • Muted demeanor in the presence of caregivers.
  • Sudden changes in emotional behavior, such as aggressive outbursts.
  • Changes made to the resident’s power of attorney, insurance policies, titles, or wills.
  • Unexplained withdrawals or charges made to the resident’s financial account(s).
  • Overdue or unpaid bills.
  • Unexplained STDs, genital infections, or torn underwear.

Victims of nursing home abuse should immediately move to a safe environment to report the incident. Families can also prevent abuse by making frequent, unannounced visits, maintaining communication with the patient, and speaking with nursing home personnel.

Pursuing a Nursing Home Abuse Claim

A nursing home and its employees can be held liable for incidents of negligence. Claimants can bring a legal cause of action against an at-fault party within two years in the state of Florida, or four years when fraud or misrepresentation impeded discovery, for a broad range of damages: medical expenses and rehabilitation, pain and suffering, disability, and disfigurement.

Nursing homes operating in the United States are legally obligated to provide quality care, maintain clean and safe premises, and employ certified staff who can provide for the residents’ needs. Unfortunately, these standards are not always met. Understaffed facilities, insufficient training, inadequate supervision, and income prioritization are driving factors that contribute to nursing home abuse cases.

Florida victims can report incidents of abuse to the nursing home administration, state and federal authorities, and the Department of Elder Affairs.
