Nursing home abuse and neglect is any type of harm that comes to older residents in care facilities. Harm can come in the form of physical or emotional abuse, while neglect is lack of attention or care from the staff in the facilities.

What are Common Nursing Home and Abuse Cases?
Many types of abuse and neglect cases stem from the employees that work in the facilities or from poor operation of the facility. Some common cases include:
Burnout– Employees at residence facilities become frustrated from long hours and working conditions. These frustrations boil over into poor treatment of the residents.
Understaffing-Residents receive improper care from limited staff at the facilities. The added stress and workload of employees causes poor care.
Improper Training- Workers that receive improper crisis response or general training can hurt residents.
Lack of Supervision– Residents can go for several hours without attention that creates dangerous and potentially harmful living environments.
Financial Scams– Residents can have their sensitive financial information compromised by workers from the residence.
