Some of the most commonly reported types of abuse in nursing home facilities include:

  • Physical abuse – This type of abuse typically involves hitting, slapping, pinching or the overuse of restraints. Neglect is also considered physical abuse.
  • Exploiting residents financially – Financial exploitation of elderly people is commonplace in nursing home facilities. Many nursing home employees befriend residents and abuse their trust by gaining access to their credit cards and bank accounts.
  • Sexual abuse – Sexual abuse includes verbal harassment and unwanted touching. This is especially problematic when patients have diminished cognitive skills and cannot effectively communicate with others.
