are ignored, typical injuries include bedsores, infections, mobility issues, or
catastrophic outcomes involving death
- **Meet the Daily and Basic Needs of the resident:** Often times, the nursing
home staff will fail to provide basic services to the resident, including food,
water, or clean surroundings.
- **Meet Daily Hygienic Needs:** This occurs when the nursing home staff fails
to adequately assist its residents with their personal hygiene needs.
- **Emotional Support:** Emotional neglect occurs when residents are ignored by
nursing home staff and feel unsupported, resulting in physical and emotional
- **Physical Support:** Physical abuses to the residents occur when the nursing
home staff inflicts harm on the residents.
Nursing home victims are often victimized because they reside in the nursing home
due to cognitive or degenerative conditions. The mistreatment of these victims
deserve a voice and avid representation.
