What Does Nursing Home Physical Abuse Look Like?

Physical abuse of the elderly takes many forms, and can include the following:

  • Striking or punching an elder
  • Using force or physical restraints to keep an elder in bed
  • Pushing an elder down
  • Throwing an object at an elder

This type of behavior is often covered up by abusive employees. Vigilant family and friends should always be on the lookout for signs that their loved one is being abused. This could include:

Unexplained bruises or cuts

  • Broken bones
  • Malnutrition or dehydration
  • Fear of a particular orderly or caretaker
  • Uncharacteristic mood swings or depression

Often, the person suffering from the abuse is unable to communicate what is happening to them. Nursing home employees may explain the signs of abuse as happening in “accidents.”
