Signs of nursing home abuse

Nursing home abuse happens every day in Arizona. Nursing home residents are often the victims of horrible elder abuse because they have physical or mental restrictions that leave them unable to communicate what is going on. The first step in preventing nursing home abuse is to recognize the signs. Nursing home abuse can be mental, physical, or simple negligence. Regardless of the form, nursing home abuse should be reported and if you see any of the signs they should be immediately investigated.


Signs of nursing abuse that should be immediately investigated include

  • UNEXPLAINED BRUISES, CUTS, BURNS, SPRAINS, OR FRACTURES
  • SPECIFIC COMPLAINTS BY RESIDENTS

  • LOSS OF RESIDENT'S POSSESSIONS OR WEIGHT AND APPETITE
  • ANY SUDDEN BEHAVIORAL CHANGE
