Sadly, nursing home abuse and neglect incidents are not uncommon. High patient loads combined with long staff working hours, can lead to nursing home employee burnout and dangerously compromised care for vulnerable residents.
Things to Know About Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Below are some possible red flags of abuse or neglect:
- Emotional changes / withdrawal
- Depression / crying
- Complaints of neglect or poor treatment
- Infected bedsores / pressure ulcers
- Unexplained injuries
