Augusta Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Attorneys
You Could Be Entitled to Compensation For:
According to a study conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO), one in five nursing home residents will experience abuse.
According to a study completed by the National Center on Elder Abuse, psychological and emotional abuse makes up over 33% of abuse at institutional centers.
Some nursing home staffers have even been caught pressuring residents to sign over their financial accounts; this is known as an abuse of power of attorney. It’s reported that a whopping $2.6 billion each year is lost due to financial abuse.
This is the most common and most undetectable form of nursing home abuse. It is the failure of caregivers to meet the nursing home residents’ basic needs, including the provision of food, fluids, safe shelter, exercise, medication, and security. Neglect is the most difficult form of abuse to identify because it often does leave clear physical signs.
