FIGHTING ABUSE & NEGLECT IN TEXAS NURSING HOMES
Most nursing home facilities treat their residents’ physical and emotional needs with the care and attention they deserve. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and sometimes nursing home workers are abusive or neglectful toward residents. This kind of mistreatment can come in many forms, some of which are hard to spot unfortunately. Abuse may be physical, verbal, psychological, or sexual. Neglect can take many different forms, all of which can have varying adverse effects on the victim of the abuse or neglect.

TYPES OF NURSING HOME ABUSE & NEGLECT
Depending on the form and extent of the abuse or neglect a victim endures, he or she may suffer from a number of serious side effects, some of which can be life-threatening. Common forms of nursing home and neglect include:
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse, or “White Coat Rape”
- Bed Sores
- Medication errors
The effects of any of these types of mistreatment can be quite damaging. Fortunately, nursing homes and their staff can not only be held criminally responsible for this abuse or negligence, but also civilly liable in many cases, allowing a family to pursue restitution on behalf of the nursing home resident who was mistreated.
