How is elder abuse typically manifested?

Nursing homes throughout California are held to a certain standard of care. When they break this duty of care, you may be able to take legal action against the facility as a whole or against one employee in particular. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recognizes six different forms of abuse commonly transpiring against adults age 60 and older.

These forms of mistreatment include the following:

  • Neglect
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Abandonment
  • Emotional abuse
  • Financial abuse

If you recognize one or more of these problems, it may be a sign that the nursing home is not performing according to their legal standards. Your attorney can advise you on further action, which may include calling Adult Protective Services, as well as filing an aggressive lawsuit on your loved one's behalf.
