Forms of Emotional Abuse

When you’ve made the brave decision to place your loved one in a nursing home, you should be able to trust that the facility and its staff will provide them with the care and attention that he or she needs, including physical as well as emotional care. Unfortunately, far too many Texas nursing home residents suffer from emotional abuse in nursing homes and do not know what to do about it. Fortunately, the attorneys of Hotze Runkle can work with you and your family to not only to put an end to the abuse, but also prevent future abuse from occurring.

Emotionally Abusive Behaviors

There are many ways that a resident’s emotional health can be targeted by an abusive staff member in a nursing home. Many Texas nursing home residents suffer from the following emotionally abusive behaviors:

  • Name calling
  • Shouting / yelling at residents
  • Humiliation / degradation
  • Public set-downs
  • Verbal abuse
  • Forced isolation

All of these behaviors can easily constitute emotional abuse and take their toll on a nursing home resident’s often fragile emotional and psychological well being. Victims of emotional abuse in nursing homes can fight back, and possibly fight for compensation.
