Primary Categories of Nursing Home Abuse
When unable to provide for the daily needs of elderly loved ones, sometimes we put our trust in nursing homes to care for them. Unfortunately, though many nursing homes prioritize the safety of residents, others give subpar care to or even abuse innocent residents. If you believe you have discovered your loved one is suffering from abuse in a nursing home, the attorneys of Pohl & Berk, LLP, can help you evaluate your legal options for stopping it once and for all.
3 Categories of Abuse
There are essentially three primary categories of abuse that occur in nursing homes. Each of them can cause significant damage, and each is a violation of a resident’s right to safety. The categories include:
- Physical Abuse
- Emotional / Psychological Abuse
- Sexual Abuse
Under these broad categories, numerous more specific actions abound. If you are unsure which form of abuse your loved one has endured or continues to endure, an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer in Tennessee can help you determine the specific behavior and speak with you about your legal options for putting an end to it.
