What is Nursing Home Abuse?

Nursing home abuse can involve physical abuse such as hitting, pinching, pushing, arm-twisting, or even sexual assaults by staff members or, in some cases, other residents. Physical abuse can also include the use of physical restraints that cause injuries as well as the use of chemical restraints (over-medicating clients to control their behavior).

The most common forms of physical abuse simply involve a failure to provide basic human care — making sure residents are not left alone in their beds too long without moving, helping them take care of hygienic needs like brushing their teeth, bathing, or putting on clothes, even making sure they get enough to eat and drink — things most people take for granted when they place a loved one under the care of such a facility.

Emotional abuse is no less abhorrent and damaging. It is also more common than we might like to believe. Emotional abuse can involve verbal insults, yelling, threats, and other conduct meant to instill fear in residents and to demean their sense of self-worth, dignity, and value as human beings. It can be subtle or overt. It nearly always results in residents feeling more isolated and unable to protect themselves. It is also more difficult to uncover than physical abuse.
