Outright, intentional abuse of nursing home residents includes emotional, financial, psychological, sexual and verbal abuse, not just physical abuse. Sexual abuse includes any unwanted sexual contact, forced nudity, inappropriate photography, or battery. Physical abuse can include battery, unreasonable and dangerous restraints, inappropriate use of drugs on a patient, and refusing to help or transport a resident. Emotional (psychological, mental) abuse includes verbal harassment, intimidation, ignoring and excluding resident, and isolating him or her from friends and family who live in or come to visit nursing home. Of course, not all forms of abuse are listed here, so consult with an attorney if you feel that you or your family member is being abused or neglected.
