How Common Is Nursing Home Abuse in the U.S.?

Many people choose to entrust their loved ones to the care of nursing home facilities as they age. For many, this is their best—and often their only—choice, but it can still be a difficult one to make. While many nursing homes are staffed by caring and compassionate professionals, there are exceptions. Elder abuse can happen, and unfortunately, it is all too common.

Nursing home abuse can take many forms, including:

  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Mental abuse
  • Sexual abuse

The National Center for Elder Abuse conducted a survey of 2,000 nursing home residents in 2000. Of the patients who were surveyed, 44% reported being abused and 95% reported neglect to themselves or another patient.

How to Recognize the Signs of Elder Abuse & Neglect

One of the best ways to protect your loved ones is to be involved with regular visits. Get to know the staff. Watch out for possible signs of abuse or neglect. The National Center for Elder Abuse website provides tools to help you know what to look for and how to stop abuse. If your loved one has been the victim of elder abuse in a nursing home, taking legal action can protect their rights while ensuring that the care facility is held accountable so others don't suffer a similar fate.

Some of the most common signs of nursing home abuse or neglect include:

  • Bedsores or pressure ulcers from a lack of movement
  • Sudden weight loss, indicating malnutrition or dehydration
  • Sudden changes in personal hygiene or appearance
  • Hostility between your family member and a staff member
  • Unexplained bruises, cuts, lacerations, or bone fractures
  • Injuries from falling, indicating a lack of supervision
