Know the Warning Signs of Elder Abuse

Nursing home abuse can take a few different forms. Most commonly, elders report experiencing physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation. While physical abuse is the most common, everyone should be alert for anything that threatens the safety of your loved one. Different types of abuse will result in different symptoms, making it difficult to detect. However, a common theme among victims of abuse is a change in behavior. Someone dealing with an abusive or negligent situation is likely to behave differently, so watch for anything out of the ordinary.

Emotional or Verbal Abuse

  • Mood swings
  • Unexplained changes in behavior
  • Withdrawal from social activities
  • Depression

Physical Abuse

  • Unexplained injuries
  • Bruises, especially on wrists and ankles
  • Burn marks
  • Welts
  • Changes in behavior

Sexual Abuse

  • Physical injuries, especially near the hip, thigh, or genital area
  • Difficult sitting or moving
  • Unexplained STDs or infections
  • Stained or torn underwear
  • Fear of being touched
  • Memory loss

Neglect

  • Malnutrition
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Dehydration
  • Rapid weight loss or weight gain
  • Missed medication doses
  • Unsanitary living conditions
  • Poor personal hygiene
  • Sudden loss of mobility

Financial Exploitation

  • Unexplained financial changes
  • Missing funds
  • Changes to wills, power of attorney, property titles, or life insurance policies
  • New credit cards
  • Unusual ATM withdrawals
In any type of abusive situation, the victim might be reluctant to speak in the presence of their abuser, or they may express a fear of being left alone with them. They might also grow worried or frantic when you leave or show signs of agitation. Make sure to watch out for these signs if you suspect abuse.

What Should I Do If I Suspect Abuse?

Residents of nursing homes have the legal right to be cared for in an appropriate manner, informed about services provided by the nursing home, to manage their own money and accounts, to privacy concerning personal belongings and property, and to be informed in their medical care. When these rights are infringed upon, we owe it to our loved ones to hold facilities accountable.
If you suspect the abuse of a loved one:
  • Call local police if a resident is in immediate danger
  • Report the abuse to Elder Protective Services
  • Contact an attorney at DiPasquale Moore
Mistreatment or harm related to a nursing home needs to be addressed immediately. The first step is to remove the person from immediate danger. The next step is to retain a lawyer who will tirelessly pursue actions against the staff members and facility that allowed the abuse to perpetuate. DiPasquale Moore is prepared to take this fight on your behalf. With a proven track record of success, and a dedication to providing all of our clients with the high-quality representation they deserve, our nursing home abuse lawyers in Kansas City, MO will protect your interests without compromise.
