Causes of Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

Knowing more about the causes of nursing home abuse and neglect can help raise your awareness and notice any red flags. Oftentimes, a variety of factors contribute to these terrible incidents.

Below are some of the most common causes of nursing home abuse and neglect:

  • The facility is understaffed, creating a hostile and tense environment. Some of the staff might even feel resentful or disgruntled.
  • The staff is undertrained or and lacks experience in providing medical attention and support for elderly people.
  • The staff is underpaid. Underpaid caregivers might feel undervalued and, as a result, they might provide subpar care or abuse the residents.

Other issues that often contribute to nursing home abuse and neglect include burnout, mental illness, personal troubles, or a history of abuse. Caregivers who are dealing with their own frustrations might unleash their anger and stress on the elderly residents since they likely perceive them as easy targets.

Signs of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Although some signs of nursing home abuse are more obvious, such as unexplained cuts and bruises, broken bones, or other signs of battery, others are less apparent. For example, if your loved one is being emotionally abused, there might not be any visible signs, but that does not mean the caregivers are not abusive.

Below are some signs of nursing home abuse and neglect you should be aware of:

  • Malnutrition, dehydration, and poor hygiene
  • A desire to be isolated from others
  • Unexplained weight loss or weight gain, unrelated to a medical condition
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Infections
  • Heavy medication
  • Frequent illnesses
  • Sudden changes in behavior
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Instances of wandering

If you suspect your elderly loved one is being abused or neglected, you need to reach out to the proper authorities and obtain skilled legal counsel as soon as possible.
