What is nursing home abuse? Part 1

If you or a loved one are living in one of New York’s long-term care facilities, such as a nursing home, you should become familiar with nursing home abuse. The Cambridge Dictionary states that abuse occurs when one person takes advantage of another who is dependent upon them for care, or uses them in ways that are harmful or immoral.


According to the National Center on Elder Abuse, elder abuse comes in six federally recognized main categories. According to data taken from the National Ombudsman Reporting System, the federal system responsible for reporting the six types of nursing home abuse, you are most likely to experience physical abuse than any other type of abuse while in a care facility. This is followed closely by psychological abuse, gross neglect, financial and sexual exploitation and abandonment. If you experience one or more of these six types of abuse while an elderly resident of an institution like a nursing home, you may be the victim of nursing home abuse.


Unfortunately, if you are experiencing one type of abuse, it is likely that you are also the victim of at least one additional kind. Almost every form of abuse also involves emotional or psychological abuse, which is a tool abusers use to keep their patients from reporting their actions to the authorities.  


We will evaluate each type of abuse in detail in future posts so you can be sure that you and those you love have the knowledge and tools necessary to stay safe from abuse within these institutions.
