Massachusetts Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Many of our Massachusetts elderly loved ones have deteriorating physical health and require the utmost care and attention. Massachusetts nursing homes and Massachusetts elder care facilities are supposed to be professional and competent Massachusetts medical facilities that cater to the needs of senior citizens who can no longer fully care for themselves. Far too often, however, rather than providing a safe environment, some Massachusetts nursing home professionals abuse or neglect the Massachusetts residents under their care.

Massachusetts nursing home abuse can take many forms; it can be both emotional and financial, and in some cases may even involve physical assault. Some of our most vulnerable Massachusetts elders, including those with dementia or disabilities, are the most susceptible to Massachusetts nursing home abuse. What is even more tragic is that incidents of Massachusetts nursing home neglect and abuse are rarely reported to the proper authorities. Massachusetts nursing home residents may be reluctant to complain for fear of retaliation or embarrassment, and families of abused or neglected victims might be unaware of the common signs of Massachusetts nursing home abuse and neglect.

Massachusetts nursing home abuse and neglect manifests itself in a variety of signs and symptoms. Warning signs to particularly watch out for include:

  • Abuse
  • Chronic bedsores
  • Frequent and unexplained injuries, such as bruises, cuts, black eyes or burns
  • Frequent complaints of pain
  • Passive, withdrawn or emotionless behavior
  • Use of unwarranted physical restraints
  • Neglect
  • Consistent hunger and thirst
  • Dehydration
  • Lack of personal hygiene
  • Lack of care for existing medical conditions
  • Habitually dressed in torn or soiled clothing
  • Malnutrition
  • Unexplained weight loss
