Nursing Home Abuse

When elders are sent to nursing homes away from home and observation of family members, they may risk getting "Nursing Home Abuse." The majority of abuse cases found that nurses are the assailant themselves. This may be due to improper training, negligence, or intentional actions. Elders could be abused in many ways, from physical assault, emotional abuse, financial abuse, or even sexual abuse. 

Nursing home abuse also appears to be heavily underreported. Since nurses are in charge of providing reports to the elder's family members. Any incident or harm caused by them could slip away unnoticed. On the other hand, the elders may not be able to inform family members, because of their physical limitations, lack of audacity, or simply because they are afraid that the nurses will harm them further. 

Different states and countries have elder laws to help protect the rights of the elders. If you suspect that your elders in nursing homes are being abused, the elder law is a significant assistant toward them. 

Elder Law Attorney

Elder law attorneys are advocates for the elderly and their loved ones. Most elder law attorneys can handle a wide range of legal matters affecting a senior person, including issues related to health care, guardianship, retirement, social security, and other important matters. If your elders are facing nursing home abuse, an elder law attorney can be substantial support for them.
