We Can Help With Psychological Abuse In Nursing Homes
Physiological and emotional abuses against elderly residents in care facilities are among the most commonly overlook forms of nursing home abuse. Tragically, terrorizing, billeting, threatening, and verbal abuse in general are all too common, and do not display the same obvious physical signs as other forms of abuse and neglect. This makes it incredibly important to know the signs of psychological abuse and to take swift action if these signs become apparent – particularly if your loved one is incapable of clear and effective communication.
If you suspect a loved one is facing any form of mistreatment at his or her care facility in Seattle or surrounding areas of Washington, please contact The Hornbuckle Firm online or by calling our Bellevue office at (425) 679-0742 today to schedule a free consultation with one of our experienced nursing home attorneys.
Signs Of Psychological Abuse
When a nursing home resident is being emotionally abused, changes in behavior are often the clearest sign. These can include:
- Adopting abnormal behaviors such as rocking or nail biting
- An unwillingness to be around other residents
- Depression or anxiety
- Visible fear around nursing home staff
Swift changes in behavior may be a clear indication that a problem exists and should be monitored closely. If you are comfortable approaching trusted staff members, you can ask about behavioral changes to better understand the situation. If you feel uncomfortable talking to staff or find explanations suspicious, it may be time to bring your concerns to the attention of an experienced nursing home attorney.
