Common Nursing Home Physical Injuries
Physical abuse and neglect can cause a nursing home patient to suffer from physical injuries. Aside from outright attacks by staff, negligence can cause an elderly person to develop ailments, or sustain an injury in a fall if someone was not watching over them.
Any type of mistreatment by caregivers can contribute to:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Bed sores
An older person who is suffering from physical injuries caused by nursing home staff may exhibit emotional and behavioral signs as well, such as acting fearful, depressed, isolated, or agitated. The need for frequent medical treatment is another potential non-visual sign that a patient is experiencing physical injuries.
