    Acting on Suspicions of Elder Abuse or Neglect

    In many cases, nursing home abuse victims who are harmed at the hands of a caregiver are unable or afraid to speak up for themselves. They often display a range of physical or emotional signs, however.

    Symptoms such as malnutrition, dehydration, unexplained injuries, bedsores, nervous or fearful behavior, or depression may be signs your loved one has been abused. You have the right to report suspicions of nursing home abuse and seek compensation for the injuries your loved one has endured.
