Signs of Abuse

What to Look for in Elder and Nursing Home Abuse

There are particular signs that may indicate that someone you know is the victim of nursing home abuse or elder abuse of some kind. By understanding these, you can be on the lookout for seemingly small issues that may actually be related to a serious underlying problem. We welcome you to contact a Los Angeles elder abuse attorney at our law offices if you suspect that your loved one is currently the victim of any form of elder abuse. Following are some signs to be aware of:

  • Unexplained injuries
  • Reoccurring bruises or lacerations
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Withdrawal
  • Depression
  • Weight loss
  • Signs of physical injury
  • Fear of a particular caregiver
  • A caregiver will not let you be alone with your loved one
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Blood on clothes
  • Torn clothing
  • Continual restraint of your loved one
  • Continual sedation or medication of your loved one
  • Caregiver will not answer questions about your loved one's injuries or illnesses

At times, an elderly patient or resident in a Los Angeles nursing home or assisted living facility will not originate or own up to the fact that abuse is occurring. This is one of the many reasons it is so important to be aware of these potential signs of abuse and to act on them as quickly as possible. This may help avoid lasting results of elder abuse and may also help ensure that you are able to take the legal action that is your right.
