This must be racing through your mind already. Nursing home abusers think they are smart. They behave like predators; wolves that seek out the weakest among the herd and prey on them. Many residents who suffer a type of memory disease have been recorded to have wounds inflicted upon them during sexual abuse at nursing homes. In fact, since such victims can barely remember being sexually abused, it can be difficult or impossible for them to speak out.
Family members are advised to closely study their loved ones who are residents at nursing homes in order to identify any changes in attitude or behavior, and private parts can be examined for presence of fresh injuries or healing ones. This can help in discovering if the sexual abuse involved penetration or not. After suspicions, please file a legal report to an experienced Attorney and allow him take the case. Our team of Attorneys when contacted, will study the case for any possibilities, if any, and we will take it from there to file a legal suit without any upfront costs. You would only pay us a commission when we have won your case and you are awarded compensations for damages incurred by your beloved one.
Many times, these are the signs of abuse or neglect at a nursing home:
- Bed sores
- Low self-esteem
- Hair loss
- Rapid loss in weight
- Rejection of medications
- Fresh injuries
- Abnormal cuts, bruises
- Slowness or unresponsiveness
- Strange attitude
- Physical or emotional withdrawal
- Unexplainable financial transactions
- Disappearance of personal property
It is also necessary to add these situations; sometimes a nursing home resident gets very uncomfortable around a particular staff member. Discomfort at the sight of a staff, by any resident, is an indication of a certain dislike when explored, may boil down to series of abusive incidents. Also, when a nursing home staff member repeatedly refuses to leave you alone with a resident even after you insist so, it could mean he or she wants his or her presence to intimidate the resident from speaking the truth about some abusive incidents. These signs are subtle and family members should be very observant.
