Although nursing home staff are individuals who trained to provide patients with proper care, there are times when they fall short. According to Nursing Home Abuse Guide, there are more than 3.2 million individuals who live in nursing homes in the United States. When an individual who lives in a nursing home is subjected to abuse, he or she has a 300% greater chance to die within 3 years of the abuse opposed to those who are not abused.

There was a congressional report that examined nursing home records over a 2 year period. The report showed that an estimated 1 and 3 nursing homes in the United States were cited for violations regarding abuse. Furthermore, an estimated 10% of nursing homes were cited for violations, which resulted in harm and increased their chances of death. One survey of nursing home residents reported that an estimated 44% of nursing home residents stated they have been abused while in a nursing home, and 95% of nursing home residents surveyed stated they had witnessed another resident being abused.

Nursing home abuse is a serious offense. Sadly, nursing home neglect is more common in New York than one may think. When a nursing home resident has been subjected to abuse, it is imperative the staff who was responsible for the abuse be held responsible for their neglectful actions. In the state of New York, there is a document that is titled “Your Rights as a Nursing Home Resident in New York State and Nursing Home Responsibilities.” This document explains the rights of nursing home residents and explains regulations and policies nursing homes in New York must adhere to at all times. The document explains that it is the responsibility of the nursing home to “protect you from any kind of harsh and abusive treatment.”

Common Causes of Nursing Home Abuse
There are many reasons a patient may be subjected to nursing home abuse. In New York, there are some general causes that lead to nursing home abuse, which include:

  • The nursing home is understaffed.
  • The nursing home staff is not properly qualified to carry out their responsibilities.
  • The nursing home failed to administer proper background checks.
  • There is not proper medical equipment in the nursing home.

Warning Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
When a nursing home resident has been abused, there are times it can be easily detected. There are common signs family members of nursing home residents can look for in their loved ones such as:

  • Bedsores that haven’t been properly treated
  • Cuts
  • Bruises
  • Sudden weight loss

Furthermore, family members of nursing home residents should also pay attention to their loved one’s room. If there are lice, fleas, or dirt present, then it is neglect. Nursing home residents should be provided with clean rooms that are free from pests. If family members notice poor personal hygiene, such as body oder or other problems, then it also needs to be addressed.

What if You Suspect Your Loved One is Being Abused?
If you suspect your loved one has been abused by a nursing home staff, then it is vital to seek advice from a nursing home abuse lawyer in Brooklyn. An experienced nursing home abuse attorney can help family members and their loved ones seek the compensation they deserve. A trusted attorney can provide assistance to those who have been subjected to:

  • Untreated bedsores
  • Decubitus ulcers
  • Burns
  • Falls
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Medical errors
  • Sexual abuse

When individuals trust nursing home staff with the care of their loved ones, they shouldn’t have to worry about their loved ones being subjected to abusive situations. Although it is the responsibility of the New York State Department of Health to oversee residential care facilities, such as nursing homes, there are times when abusive situations are missed. It is important for family members of nursing home residents to keep a close eye on a loved one to ensure they are protected and receive proper care.
