Neglect Can Cause Serious Injuries, Illness, And Death
One of the least understood types of abuse an elderly person can experience in a nursing home is neglect. Nursing home employees are responsible for meeting their residents’ basic needs, and neglect can occur in various ways. This includes the following:
Basic needs neglect: This means that the staff is not providing your loved one with proper food or water, shelter, and a safe and clean environment.
Emotional or social neglect: This can occur when nursing home employees isolate residents, ignore them, yell at them for any reason, made a resident feel worthless, or more.
Personal hygiene neglect: Nursing home employees should always help residents with personal hygiene. This includes regular bathing needs, oral hygiene, cleaning their clothes and bedding, and more.
Medical neglect: Nursing homes should provide all medical care and medications necessary for the resident’s well-being. If an emergency arises, they must call for immediate emergency medical assistance.
