Take the case to trial if that is what it takes to receive a fair settlement.
Elder Sexual Abuse Is More Common Than Most People Think
Many people only hear about elder sexual abuse in nursing homes when they see incidents on the news, but it happens every day in the US. In a nursing home, sexual abusers can be employees or volunteers at the nursing home. They can even be other residents. We know that only around 30% of sexual abuse victims in nursing homes report the abuse to authorities.
Most elder abuse victims in the US reside in nursing homes or assisted living facilities.
Almost all elder sexual abuse happens at the hands of those responsible for their care.
Various signs and symptoms that family members of elderly nursing home residents need to look out for include:
Unexplained difficulty when walking or sitting
Pelvic injuries and bruising near the inner thighs or genital area
Pain, bleeding, or irritation in the anal or genital area
Torn, stained, or bloody undergarments
In Anaheim, there are several facilities responsible for maintaining appropriate care for the elderly:
