Common Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse can involve several types of mistreatment, including neglect, physical violence, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and financial exploitation. The most common signs of nursing home abuse include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Physical Abuse: Broken bones, bruises, cuts, burns, welts, and other frequent or unexplained injuries
  • Emotional Abuse: Anxiety, depression, substance abuse, suicidal thoughts or actions, lowered confidence, and aggressive or violent behavior
  • Financial Abuse: Missing money or possessions, unexplained transactions, and new changes to important documents like the will or power of attorney.
  • Sexual Abuse: Unexplained sexually transmitted diseases, inappropriate behavior from staff members, and genital injuries
  • Neglect: Bed sores, dehydration, malnutrition, infections, lack of medical care, lack of personal hygiene, and unclean or unsanitary conditions

It can be difficult to spot nursing home abuse at first, and many senior citizens are reluctant to discuss this trauma. If you suspect that your loved one is suffering from mistreatment, approach him or her kindly and ask if he or she needs help. Then, get your loved one to a safe location as soon as you can and seek medical care for any injuries.

How to Report Nursing Home Abuse in Conyers, GA

Once your loved one is safe, it is important to document evidence of the abuse and file a report with the proper authorities. Call 911 if someone is in immediate danger. Otherwise, take the following steps to report the abuse:

  • File a non-emergency police report for elder abuse in Clarke County by calling (706) 613-3345.
  • File a report of elder abuse with the Division of Aging Services by calling (866) 552-4464.
  • Report the incident to the manager of the nursing home. If you need support, contact an attorney as soon as possible.

After a report is filed, you could also hold the nursing home and its employees accountable for the harm that your loved one suffered. By filing a personal injury lawsuit, your loved one could recover financial compensation to pay for medical care, pain and suffering, and other damages due to the abuse.
