Examples of Physical Abuse in Nursing Homes

Though we trust that nursing homes and their caretakers will provide the very best in physical and psychological care for our loved ones who are in the nursing home, the sad reality is that this is not always the case. In fact, far too many nursing home residents are subjected to physical abuse by either the caretakers or others in the home. Though this abuse can take many forms, some of the more common include:

  • Restraining a resident too forcefully
  • Pushing/shoving residents
  • Hitting residents
  • Sexually assaulting a resident
  • Causing broken bones
