Nursing Home Abuse

What You Need to Know:

Signs of Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect:

  • Physical intimidation, including slapping, pushing or shaking
  • Forcefully being restricted to one room
  • Assault and battery
  • Sexual assault and battery
  • Rape
  • Unreasonable physical restraint
  • Deprivation of food or water for an extended amount of time
  • Improperly dispensing or withholding medication

If you have entrusted the care of your elderly relative to a nursing home facility, and they have not only done the job insufficiently, but your loved one has suffered because of their action or inaction, it is important to contact an experienced attorney immediately.

There are standards set by the state of Arizona to ensure minimum care for elderly patients at a nursing facility, and there is no excuse for those standards not to be met.

Arizona Nursing Home Malpractice


Nursing home abuse and neglect is both a civil and criminal offense, which means that nursing homes which abuse their elderly patients will face both criminal charges as well as lawsuits requiring compensation for the medical, mental, emotional, and physical damages that they caused.

These damages are in relation to their elderly victims, but family members who experience pain and suffering may also be compensated, especially if a wrongful death was associated with the abuse.

It is important to pursue legal action immediately if you even suspect a little bit of abuse or negligence in your loved one's nursing home.

Most incidents of abuse go unreported, so you are your loved one's first line of defense. Even if you aren't entirely sure, it is wise to speak with a nursing home malpractice attorney as soon as you can. Give us a call.

Critical Signs to Look for:

  • Frequent unexplained injuries
  • Untreated wounds, cuts, bruises, bedsores, or welts
  • Complaints from the patient about mistreatment
  • Unexplained changes in your loved one's behaviors or attitude towards the facility

Although having one or more of these signs is not a definitive measure of abuse or neglect, it is a place to start if you have concerns for your loved one's well-being. Do not dismiss any concerns you might have without talking to someone knowledgeable in the field of nursing home abuse.
