Protecting Your Elderly Loved Ones From Neglect And Abuse

Elder abuse is the neglect or physical, emotional or financial abuse of the elders. Physical abuse or neglect commonly occurs when seniors are residing in long-term care facilities (such as nursing homes or assisted living facilities) that are understaffed or poorly run. Examples of the results of physical abuse or nursing home neglect include:

  • Falls
  • Fractures
  • Bedsores
  • Infections
  • Malnutrition
  • Sexual abuse
  • Abandonment
  • Dehydration
  • Bruises
  • Improper use of medication and restraints
  • Wrongful death

If you see any signs of nursing home abuse, you need to speak with a Charlotte attorney as soon as possible. Even a small sign of abuse that the nursing home tries to explain away or downplay could be a sign that there is a larger problem.
