Common Nursing Home Physical Injuries

Physical abuse and neglect can cause physical injuries. Aside from outright attacks by staff, other kinds of mistreatment, like neglect, can cause an elderly person to develop ailments or sustain an injury in a fall if someone is not watching over them.

Identifying Signs of Elder Abuse and Neglect:

  • Bruises
  • Cuts
  • Welts
  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Bedsores
  • Sickness
  • Disease

An older person suffering physical injuries caused by nursing home staff may exhibit emotional and behavioral signs of mistreatment, such as acting fearful, depressed, isolated, or agitated. The need for frequent medical treatment is another potential non-visual sign that a patient is suffering physical injuries.

If you notice anything else that doesn’t seem quite right to you, you should take action. Get medical care for your loved one, contact the authorities, and speak to an attorney. If you believe your loved one is in immediate danger, you should contact the authorities immediately.
