According to a 2005 study by the California Healthcare Foundation (CHF), violations of state and federal nursing home standards rose between 2001 and 2004, yet the number of citations (fines) decreased.

Signs and Symptoms of Nursing Home Abuse

According to the National Center of Elder Abuse, senior abuse and neglect can take many forms, including:

  • Physical neglect: disregard for the necessities of daily living
  • Medical neglect: lack of care for existing medical problems
  • Failure to prevent dehydration, malnutrition, falls, and bed sores
  • Failure to assist in personal hygiene
  • Unsanitary and unclean conditions
  • Failure to protect from health and safety hazards
  • Poor access to medical services
  • Assault and battery
  • Sexual Assault
  • Unreasonable physical restraint
  • Giving too much or not enough medication
  • Slapping, pushing, shaking, beating
  • Forcing a person to stay in a room

Vulnerable People Placed at Risk

Inadequate staffing and use of physical restraints are just two indicators of poor quality of care. The CHF study revealed that 95 percent of California nursing homes did not meet federal recommendations for adequate staffing and nearly a quarter of the state’s nursing homes did not meet the less rigorous state standards. Physical restraints were used on residents of California facilities at twice the national average.

Elderly residents are among the most vulnerable members of our society. The California nursing home abuse attorneys at The Reeves Law Group are dedicated to seeking justice on their behalf. If you suspect a family member is a victim of elder abuse or neglect, please do not hesitate to contact us today at (800) 644-8000.
