Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse and neglect can take many forms. And in some cases, residents may not be able to report poor treatment or unsafe conditions without help. That’s why you should be on the lookout for the following signs of abuse:
- Abnormally pale complexion
- Bruises that suggest the use of restraints
- Fleas, lice, mold, mildew, or dirt on residents or within rooms
- Odors of urine or feces
- Poor personal hygiene or other unattended health problems
- Sudden and/or excessive weight loss
- Torn clothing or broken personal items
- Untreated wounds, cuts, bruises, or welts
In addition to these signs of abuse, it’s important to communicate with your loved one about his or her living situation on a regular basis. Unexplained restrictions on phone calls or visits may also be warning signs of abuse or neglect.
