Nursing Home Neglect – Filing a Lawsuit for Elderly Abuse
The incidence of elder abuse happens in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and skilled nursing facilities. Elderly people are referred to live in these facilities when they are no longer able to take care of themselves.
Perhaps the most widespread form of elder abuse is nursing home neglect. Neglect occurs when a caregiver responsible for the health and safety of an elderly individual fails to provide them with fundamental needs, such as food, suitable shelter, medical help, proper personal hygiene, or environment. The range of neglect can occur in the cases from minor, to very severe, but the psychological, emotional, mental and physical damage is almost always harsh due to the frailty of the elderly person. many people who are living in nursing homes suffer in silence, and as a result many of these cases of elder neglect go unreported.
Three Types of Neglect Explained
There are three main types of neglect and abuse that are perpetrated against the elderly, and are prevalent in nursing homes and assisted care facilities. These types of neglect are: passive neglect, active neglect and elder abuse.
Our Recent Verdicts and Settlements
What Is Passive Neglect?
Passive neglect is seen in nursing homes and elder care facilities when the staff, administrators or caregivers in those facilities allow violence to happen to the elderly residents, causing them unconscious harm. For example, in the case of passive neglect, there is no hitting or yelling at the elderly resident. Instead, the neglect comes in the form of mental or emotional neglect, that can be just as damaging to the psyche of the elderly resident. These instances of passive neglect may take the form of:
- Neglecting the person’s vital and daily needs
- Not feeding or giving water to the person on time
- Restricting access to the toilet
- Forcing the resident who can toilet alone to wear diapers instead
- Depriving the resident with information, such as when family members have called for them or would want to visit
- Limiting the freedom of movement of the resident
- Being excessively demanding of the resident, who may be cognitively challenged and who may get easily confused
- Neglecting the safety precautions to keep the person from falling or hurting themselves in the course of the day
If you or a loved on has experienced any or all of these forms of passive neglect, you need to call our law firm immediately. We will talk to you about the next steps that you can take to stop this neglect of your loved one, and file a lawsuit on the merits of your case to be reimbursed for the pain and suffering inflicted in this situation.
What is Active Neglect?
The incidence of active neglect at a nursing home is a conscious action by the staff, administrator or caregivers to intentionally harm the elderly resident. These instances can be seen when the staff intentionally:
- Intimidates or name calls the resident to frighten the person
- Ties the person up without consent from the resident (inappropriate restraints)
- Ignores the person during an emergency of the resident
- Not calling a doctor when the doctor needs to be called immediately
- Depriving the person of regular nourishment
- Leaving the elderly resident alone and socially isolating the elderly resident
If you or your loved one has experienced any of these (or other) forms of active neglect, you should call our law firm today. We will be able to review the case, and advise you of your rights in this situation.
What is Elder Abuse?
Elder abuse is the willful infliction of physical, emotional, mental or otherwise harmful damage to an elderly resident of a nursing home or skilled nursing care facility. Physical abuse can include physical force, which may be in the form of:
- Sexual touching
- Non-consensual touches
- Abrupt grasping of the arm
- Tight restraints
- Pulling of hair
- Spitting on the person

Signs of Nursing Home Neglect
While victims of elderly neglect often go unheard, there are many signs that indicate whether nursing home neglect exists. Falls: Elderly falls are common, but may also be a direct result of neglect. Neglect will leave elderly victims fail and brittle and more likely to succumb to falling and tripping. Making matters worse, neglected victims may lie stranded for long periods after a fall, aggravating pre-existing or new injuries caused by the fall. Broken bones or fractured hips are especially rampant during these falls. Bed Sores: The development of pressure sores or bed sores (Decubitus Ulcers) are a strong sign of nursing home neglect. These sores build up after prolonged periods in bed without good care or movement. While the severity of the sore can range greatly, bed sores can infiltrate the skin and even cause debilitating infections. Malnutrition or Dehydration: Nursing homes are responsible for providing adequate nutrition and food to the elderly. This includes food, snacks, as well as vitamins and minerals. Furthermore, many elderly are incapable of feeding themselves. Thus, simply bringing a tray of food could be inadequate care. Some signs of malnutrition include:
- Cracked or pale skin around the lips
- Loss of hair
- Tooth decay
- Constant fatigue
- Bed Sores or skin rashes
- Loss of consciousness or confusion
- Brittle bones
- Urinary track infection
- Rapid weight loss
Bed-Related Injuries: Elderly are prone to suffer injuries such as strangulation or suffocation due to falling inside a bed frame or being caught on a bed rail. In extreme circumstances, caregivers will restrain the elderly to their beds instead of treating them with proper care. Wandering: Elderly individuals often are confused and disoriented which will produce periods of wandering. Nursing homes should be alerted when elderly regularly wander off so that additional safety measure can be taken. Furthermore, death following one of the wandering instances is a sign indicates that the individual was gone for a prolonged period of time without being checked on. Sedatives: Sometimes sedative medications are necessary. But all too often, caregivers substitute appropriate care for unnecessary drugs. When sedation is used, nursing homes must take certain safeguard measures, such as constant supervision, evaluation by the nursing staff, medical professionals, mental professionals, and laboratory screening. Failing to take these measure would constitute neglect. Change in Behavior: Behavioral change may occur as a result of elderly being neglect. This change may manifest in mood changes, fighting between the caregiver and elderly individual or even anger or aggressiveness. Death: Death is a part of life, and an unfortunate reality for the elderly. However, often the death is unexpected, or premature. Look for signs of neglect after death.
Types of Nursing Home Neglect
Hygiene Neglect: Many elderly individuals are incapable of even the most basic functions such as showering, cleaning or changing clothing, or brushing their teeth. Basic Needs: Everyone has some basic needs that must be tended to in order to survive. These include food, shelter and water. Medical: Nursing homes are responsible for ensuring that all clients receive adequate medical attention. In addition to providing medical care, caregivers must provide medical care in a timely fashion. Failure to provide medicines is a clear example of nursing home neglect. Emotional: Elderly individuals often complain of feeling hopeless, lonely or depressed. These feeling are exacerbated when staff in charge of the care of these individuals completely ignore their patients. Caregivers are responsible not only for providing food, shelter and medicine to the elderly, but also support and inspiration. Emotional neglect is the most difficult type of neglect to ascertain, as there are rarely any noticeable signs of abuse.
