What To Do If You Detect Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect

Nursing abuse attorney-Samer HabbasThere are different types of nursing home abuse, ranging from intentional abuse to a general lack of care or neglect. Nursing home abuse can also be physical, emotional or even sexual. But regardless of what type of abuse your elderly loved one was subjected to while at their nursing home facility, it will take a heavy toll on them.

If you detect any type of nursing home or elderly abuse, it is urgent that you take certain important steps to address the issue and hopefully prevent it from happening again in the future.

Steps to Take When You Suspect Nursing Home Abuse

Start a Dialogue

Once you suspect that your loved one or another elderly in the nursing home facility is subject to abuse, the most important step you need to take is to open a dialogue with the individual who is being abused. It is common for the individual not want to talk to about the abuse. However, without revealing the truth, you cannot address the issue and stop it from happening again.

Listen, Don’t Judge

Once you have opened the dialogue, it is imperative that you listen to the person being abused without judging. In order to make the individual feel they are being heard and comfortable to continue talking, you need to listen without interrupting and reinforce the fact that you are here to help and provide support.

Inform the Proper Authority

Once you have heard the abuser’s story, you need to determine who needs to be informed. In most cases, our Orange County nursing home abuse lawyers advise clients to inform the person in charge of the nursing home as well as law enforcement.
