nursing home abuse Archives

Son charged with financial abuse of nursing home-bound mother

Although nursing homes can be the site of elder abuse and caregivers can be guilty of related crimes, the problem also exists in the home. Anywhere that elders and their reactions to events can be hidden from public view is a possible site for abuse, which thrives on secrecy.

Legal issues surround Florida nursing home prohibition

Nursing homes and other residential facilities that offer long-term care are home to a diverse group of senior citizens with a large array of physical needs. The most typical legal issue that occurs around nursing homes is the possibility of abuse or neglect on the part of caregivers or administrators.

Florida politician proposes nationwide elder abuse tracking

Elder abuse is a major problem in the United States, where the crime is so underreported that there are few reliable statistics. It is believed that elder abuse largely happens in the home, where violence and humiliation can happen beyond the view of neighbors or the public.

Lack of reporting makes nursing home abuse worse

Nursing homes make it possible to care for senior citizens with efficiency and respect. This is vital for people who have limited abilities to care for themselves. Regrettably, some caregivers and visitors to these facilities can take advantage of this situation.

Sepsis and broken bones are key signs of nursing home abuse

Nursing homes are meant to be restful places where patients and senior residents can expect a peaceful and supportive environment. This need is so crucial that any breach of trust by a nursing home visitor or caregiver must be reported to the appropriate authorities for the good of the victim and the community.

Why you need to look for signs of nursing home abuse

You may hear stories of nursing home abuse in Florida every day on the news. The thought of it hitting so close to home is hard to believe. You may think your elderly parent is safe from harm in a nursing home because she or he has not had anything bad to say. However, you should not wait for your loved one to draw your attention to the danger he or she may be in. There is always the possibility your parent is suffering at the hands of his or her caregiver.

Arbitration changes nursing home abuse cases

Residential senior living is a comfortable and efficient choice for millions of senior Floridians, and many nursing homes provide a place to live and a place to work for many across Florida. These institutions require fair oversight and the expectation of safety, because "our loved ones are there and we need to hold nursing homes accountable."

Investigation into elder abuse shows pattern of behavior

A man native to New York who spent decades in Florida is being investigated in the Sunshine State in connection to the recent death of an elderly relative. The suspect and his wife arrived in his native state from Florida last summer to act as caregivers for his 95-year-old grandmother, who was suffering from dementia.
