What should I do if I suspect a relative in a nursing home is being abused?
Nursing home abuse is a particularly devastating problem, but can be very difficult to reveal. As the perpetrators of the abuse may use threats and violence to silence nursing home residents, getting real evidence of abuse for a lawsuit can be difficult. However, a family can request their relative visit a doctor unaffiliated with the nursing home. Additionally, they may want to schedule a consultation with a legal adviser to talk with their relative regarding what events are occurring in the nursing home.
