How do I know if a loved one is being abused or neglected at a nursing home?
If someone you know is living in a nursing home or assisted living facility and has told you that they have been abused, then you should take note of some signs that would indicate abuse. For example, if there is bruising or scrapes, you should consider reporting the abuse. Your loved one may have been moved in an improper or negligent manner that would cause these injuries. Also take note if they have been treated for falls or any other medical problems, as well as if they are dehydrated.
