The effects of understaffing in nursing homes

When concerns are raised about the state of nursing homes, they are usually centered on systematic abuse and neglect. These concerns and horror stories often paint dramatized pictures of inherently mean and spiteful nursing home employees that try and make their patients' lives a living nightmare.

What is the difference between elder abuse and neglect?

It is a sad fact that the abuse and neglect of older people, both in the context of a private home and a nursing home is not a problem that is going away. Although policies and regulations are being assessed to consider how the issue can be improved, it is still seen as an problem that is severely unreported, often because it goes unnoticed by loved ones.

Nursing home residents can be victims of dosage errors

People who reside in nursing homes are vulnerable and require a high amount of monitoring and care. They depend on their caregivers to provide for them physically and emotionally, and their caregivers have a duty to ensure that all of their needs are being attended to. This is especially true for the medication that they receive, since their life can depend on them receiving the correct dosage at all times.

What is the abuse risk for people with Alzheimer’s?

Alzheimer's is a terrible disease that can affect people both old and young. With over 5 million sufferers in the U.S., it is shockingly common, and widespread suffering is experienced by the families and loved ones who feel helpless to do anything about it.

Preventing the financial exploitation of the elderly

When a person is elderly and can no longer live independently, it means that he or she can be particularly vulnerable to different types of exploitation and abuse. This means that family members and loved ones should be alert and prepare to notice signs of abuse, especially if their loved one resides in a nursing home. Nursing homes should be safe environments where a person is cared for and protected in the more vulnerable later years of his or her life. However, there have been cases of people using their access to a nursing home to take advantage of elderly people and exploit them financially.
