Identifying Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Posted on Dec 28, 2009 5:30am PST

Nursing home abuse is a very real problem that affects thousands of people of year. If you suspect your loved one is being neglected, abused or mistreated in a nursing home, there are several signs you can look for to validate your suspicions:

  • Unexplained injuries, bruises, scratches, cuts, or red marks
  • Open welts or wounds
  • Markings that indicate physical restraints were used
  • Torn or ripped clothing
  • Depression
  • Behavior Changes
  • Unexplained changes to a will or trust
  • Unexplained withdrawals or transfers from a bank account

If you notice any of these signs, be proactive and confront the nursing home administrators and call an experienced North Carolina nursing home abuse attorney at Lanier Law Group, P.A. If the nursing home fails to address the issue, and you still fear your loved one is being abused or neglected, it's best to call the police. Even if you still aren't 100% sure, it's better to inform the police of your suspicions than to simply ignore or disregard the situation.

Even if you're not ready to file a claim yet, we can be a valuable resource and help you make important decisions to ensure your loved one no longer continues to suffer.
