Nursing Home Sexual Abuse
We assume nursing homes will protect and care for loved ones. However, some of these employees overseeing a patient’s care are committing disgusting crimes due to negligent hiring practices and supervision.
Police or state officials are not alerted to these crimes often because either the victim is afraid or his or her memory is not a full strength. Combined with the nursing home administrator’s unwillingness to uncover their employees actions, victims and their families must fight for justice.
Keep this in mind - non-consensual touching, sex, or even photography of the victim constitutes sexual abuse. Knowing the signs of nursing home sexual abuse can help stop the absue and prevent further suffering for other residents.
Nursing home sexual abuse signs include:
- Extreme depression
- Difficulty walking
