Nursing home neglect is a shockingly common tragedy. The National Center on Elder Abuse reports that roughly 95 percent of nursing home residents have been neglected — or received inadequate care.
This inadequate care can have serious repercussions — including death in extreme cases — on the nursing home residents, their physical and mental wellbeing, and their loved ones.
Nursing home negligence comes in many forms that include one-time incidents as well as long-term neglect. In nursing home negligence law, there are three main types of neglect that individuals in the care of assisted living or nursing homes may have suffered.
Includes nursing facility not properly addressing a resident senior's health needs. It may be in the form of inadequate diabetic care, mobility problems or bedsores, and other issues.
When a resident does not receive adequate interpersonal care. Also considered social neglect, this could happen if an elderly resident is left alone in their room for extended periods of time or restricted from family visitation or communication.
When nursing home personnel fail to provide basic necessities such as enough food, water, or a safe and clean environment. Neglect of personal hygiene can be included.
