How Common Is Nursing Home Abuse?

Nursing home abuse remains an unfortunate and prevalent issue across the U.S. According to the National Council on Aging (NCOA), up to five million elderly Americans are subject to this type of abuse annually. Approximately one in 10 of those over the age of 60 have suffered abuse every year. 

The World Health Organization has reported that abuse rates in nursing homes and long-term care facilities are predicted to increase due to our rapidly aging population. 

Nursing home abuse consists of one or repeated acts or omission of care that causes distress or injury to an older individual in relationships or situations where trust is expected. It is a human rights violation that can include abuse that is physical, psychological, emotional, sexual, or financial. It can also include abandonment, neglect, and a loss of dignity to the victim. 

Why Are the Elderly in Nursing Homes More Subject to Abuse?

Elderly individuals in nursing homes are more vulnerable to abuse than other populations. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), elderly residents in long-term care settings are at a higher risk of abuse and neglect due to their specific living arrangements and dependence on others. 

These people heavily rely on caregivers for their daily needs and medication management. This dependence makes them more susceptible to abuse from caregivers who may exploit their vulnerability. They also may have physical or cognitive impairments that limit their ability to protect themselves or communicate effectively. 

Older people in nursing homes may experience social isolation, with limited contact with friends, family, and the outside world. This makes it easier for abuse to go unnoticed or unreported. Furthermore, understaffing and poor staff training can contribute to an environment where abuse is more likely to occur. 

We provide comprehensive legal services for all nursing home abuse, injury, neglect, and wrongful death cases. If you notice the signs of abuse in your loved ones, do not hesitate to reach out to our firm for dedicated legal advocacy and representation.
