What is Nursing Home Neglect?

Nursing home neglect can come in many forms.

Negligence may be any of the following:

  • Neglect of basic needs: This kind of neglect may happen when the facility doesn’t provide adequate hydration or nutrition, fails to address hygiene and incontinence, and fails to provide a safe environment to the resident.
  • Medical neglect: Medical neglect can be the result of failure to address urgent medical needs and treatment for emergent conditions, such as diabetes, bed sores, infections, urinary tract infection(s), sepsis, traumatic injuries, mobility issues, and lacerations.

What is Elder Abuse?

According to the National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (NCPEA), 4-6% of the elderly have suffered some form of elderly abuse.

Examples of elder abuse include:

  • Involuntary isolation
  • Intimidation
  • Humiliation
  • Harassment
  • Hitting, slapping, pinching, and kicking
  • Sexual assault, sexual coercion, and sexual harassment
  • Verbal abuse

Signs of Abuse or Neglect

When your elderly loved ones are in need of around-the-clock care, it is impossible for you to witness every interaction they have with nursing home staff. That is why it is essential to be aware of the signs of nursing home neglect.

Common signs include:

  • Extreme loss or lack of mobility
  • Malnutrition or dehydration
  • Unsanitary living conditions
  • Unexplained injuries
  • Poor personal hygiene

Can I Sue a Nursing Home for Negligence?

Nursing homes and other elder care facilities can be held responsible for negligence if the behavior meets certain criteria. Whether the cause was nefarious intent, laziness, or an accident, the nursing home can be found liable for negligence in the following circumstances, amongst others:

  • Failure to maintain and upkeep the premises

  • Negligent hiring

  • Lack of supervision of residents

  • Failure to maintain health and safety policies

  • Failure to pursue medical treatment

Regulations may change from facility to facility. For instance, if the home accepts Medicare, it will be bound under specific regulations outlined in 42 CFR sec. 483.25 (h). If the facility fails to comply with the laws set forth, they can be held liable if the resident is injured due to negligence.
