Types of alleged nursing home abuse injuries most reported by the families of victims

According to the National Council on Aging, nearly five million older Americans experience physical nursing home injuries every year, plus almost $36.5 billion in losses by victims of financial abuse.

According to the National Council on Aging, types of nursing home injuries may include:

  • Confinement. Any restraint and/or isolation of a nursing home resident, other than for an acceptable medical treatment
  • Emotional abuse. Any verbal assault, the threat of abuse, harassment, or intimidation directed toward a nursing home resident
  • Financial exploitation. The misuse or withholding of a nursing home resident’s resources
  • Passive neglect. The failure to provide a nursing home resident with the necessities of life—such as acceptable food, clothing, shelter, or medical care
  • Physical abuse. The intentional  infliction of physical pain or injury upon a nursing home resident
  • Sexual abuse. Any unwanted sexual activity with a nursing home resident, when the older adult is unable or unwilling to give consent
  • Willful deprivation. Exposing a nursing home resident to physical, mental, or emotional harm by denying that person medical care, shelter, food, or other physical assistance

The main risks for elder abuse are social isolation; lack of access to support and resources; and physical, mental, or emotional dependence–NCEA also reports high levels of institutional abuse.

The Shield Justice Online team urges victims of alleged nursing home abuse to get a free, private case evaluation.

More statistics on alleged nursing home abuse reported by the families of victims

According to the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA), a recent systematic review of self-reports found that 33% of residents reported psychological abuse, 14% reported physical abuse, and 11% reported neglect with an estimated 24 undetected abuse cases for every single reported incident.  

Some additional specific numbers may draw more attention to the problem.

  • Adults older than 60 years of age suffer the greatest number of fatal falls.
  • Even as late as December 2020, 20.6% of nursing homes reported shortages of certified nurse aides
  • Nursing homes recorded a high number of non-Covid-19 deaths during the pandemic—at least 40,000 excess deaths from nursing home injuries

The statute of limitations is the legal term for the deadline to file a case–statutes of limitation and compensation available in nursing home cases vary from one to six years, depending on the state.

Successful nursing home injury lawsuits usually get compensatory damages that include:

  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Emotional distress

In cases where the defendant’s conduct was especially reckless or callous, courts sometimes award punitive damages meant to punish the defendant and deter others from behaving similarly in the future.

The Shield Justice Online team believes that victims of alleged nursing home abuse should receive compensation for losses.
