Does nursing home abuse mainly include physical harm?

A: Nursing home abuse can take on many forms, including physical harm. A senior relative may have peculiar bumps, bruises, cuts, bed sores, and other wounds. It isn’t uncommon for these wounds to be located in areas that aren’t readily seen in typical interactions unless you take a closer look.

For example, a family member who wants to keep an eye on their relative may check areas like their stomach, back, upper legs and underarms for marks that he or she cannot explain. Physical abuse can be intentional by using restraints aggressively or neglect where the resident’s care is not being attended to in a reasonable manner or time-frame.
