Types of Nursing Home Abuse
The Georgia nursing home abuse lawyers of Williams Oinonen LLC can help you pursue justice for the following forms of elder mistreatment:
- Physical abuse such as being punched, hit, starved, roughly handled, forcefully restrained, ignored, over or under medicated, deprived of water, food, or care.
- Emotional Abuse: verbal attacks, derogatory name calling, mistreatment, deprived of companionship, placed in isolation without cause, and more.
- Sexual abuse: rape or sexual assault.
Many nursing home abuse victims are afraid to speak out so it is important to look for signs of abuse. Possible signs may include unexplained pressure sores, bruising, broken bones, and welts; poor personal hygiene, frequently soiled linens that are not regularly changed, hazardous, and unsanitary living conditions; trips to the hospital because of sudden illnesses; changes in weight; behavioral changes including depression, anxiety, fear, a strained relationship with a staff member; and unexplained or unexpected death. If you suspect nursing home abuse, it is important that you photograph injuries, document the injuries, and get a doctor outside the nursing home to examine your loved one as soon as possible.
