When sexual abuse occurs in a nursing home, it is not always obvious to the loved ones of the victim. However, the trauma of sexual abuse can cause physical, mental, and emotional issues that can turn life-threatening if not treated. There is never an excuse for any person, no matter their age, race or gender to ever suffer sexual abuse.
In a nursing home, the sexual abuse may happen in a variety of situations including:
Sexual abuse in a nursing home should never be ignored, but the signs that are occurring can often seem hard to detect.
If you are being abused in a nursing home or suspect your loved one is, look for the following signs:
Immediately report the sexual abuse if a loved one confides in you that this is occurring or if the warning signs are severe enough. Call the police, file a report and remove your loved one from the nursing home facility to the nearest emergency room for a complete physical evaluation. The attorneys at the Clinesmith Law Firm will conduct their own investigation along with the police reports to help you have the strongest case for litigation and receive justice for the abuse that should have never occurred.
