New Jersey Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Is Your Loved One Being Abused?
Under the Nursing Home Reform Law of 1987, nursing home residents are guaranteed certain protections of their rights. A nursing home is required to not only protect but promote these designated rights, including a guaranteed quality of life, a right to be fully informed, the right to complain, and the right to privacy, among others. Unfortunately, abusers still manage to find new targets. Their actions can take on a number of different forms depending on their goals, but some of the most common forms of abuse include:
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Emotional abuse
Victims of abuse don’t always let their family and friends know about their situation for any number of reasons, ranging from medical reasons that impair their cognitive abilities like dementia or Alzheimer’s to fear of retribution from their abuses to fear of coming across as weak and unable to care for themselves. It’s important to check in with your loved one and keep an eye out for any signs of abuse. If you notice something wrong, you may need to bring in legal assistance to help you secure a safe environment for your loved one.
