Nursing home abuse takes place more often than people realize. Many cases often go unreported, as people in nursing homes may not have family or anyone else to turn to for help. Many times a victim of nursing home abuse suffers in silence not understanding what rights they have and how to legally protect themselves. A person who does actually stand up to report an incident is often rejected and disbelieved by staff; who will simply pass it off as dementia or false allegations due to old age.
In addition, many nursing homes remain silent and do not report abuse to the authorities because they do not want law enforcement, licensing boards or anyone else investigating their premises for fear of losing their license and/or being shut down.
Sadly people just do not realize how harmful, hurtful and devastating nursing home abuse is or how it affects the last years of a person’s life.
