We trust nursing homes to care for our elderly loved ones when their physical and medical needs become too much for family members to take care of on their own. Unfortunately, this leaves too many older adults vulnerable to abuse and neglect inflicted by nursing home staff or through the inaction of nursing home operators.

Unfortunately, many nursing home residents lack the ability to reach out for help themselves when they are victimized by nursing home abuse or neglect. Some victims of abuse or neglect may feel embarrassed or ashamed to report that they have been victimized. Some victims may have their means of calling for help withheld from them by their abusers as part of the abuse. And some victims of nursing home abuse or neglect who suffer from dementia and other cognitive and memory issues may not even realize what is happening to them. That makes it important for family and friends to know and look out for the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect in their loved ones. Some of the most common signs include:

In many cases, it may be possible to pursue a legal claim against a nursing home when you have had a loved one be the victim of abuse or neglect. A nursing home may be subject to employer liability for abuse or neglect that was inflicted by individual staff members working at the nursing home. Or a nursing home may be held directly liable for its own negligence that fostered the conditions for abuse or neglect, such as negligently hiring staff members who posed a significant risk of causing abuse or neglect or having insufficient monitoring to detect when abuse or neglect occurs.
Complaints about health care facilities such as nursing homes may be filed with the New Jersey Department of Health. Complaints may be filed either online or by fax or by mail, or if someone wishes to file a complaint anonymously, via phone. Complaints may also be directed to the New Jersey State Long-Term Care Ombudsman, who investigates allegations of abuse or neglect and refers complaints to the appropriate authorities if necessary. Finally, if you believe that a loved one is in imminent danger of serious injury or death from nursing home abuse, you can always call 911 or contact the local police department for assistance.
