Each year, approximately 2.1 million seniors are victims of some type of nursing home abuse. Nursing home abuse encompasses all forms of psychological, physical, financial and sexual exploitation and is a serious problem in America today. It is extremely important to report instances of nursing home neglect and abuse, because too many cases go unreported, which leads to serious injury and harm. If you or someone you love is the victim of nursing home neglect or abuse, you need to contact a Nursing Home Neglect Attorney to fight for the compensation that you deserve for your losses.

Financial and Sexual Exploitation in Nursing Homes
While we would like to believe that all caregivers employed by nursing homes are well qualified to do so and to do so appropriately, there has been an increase in reports of financial and sexual exploitation occurring in nursing homes. Some examples of financial abuse include stealing or misusing credit cards, checks or cash, stealing identities, and forging signatures. Sexual exploitation includes any touching of the genitals, forceful viewing of pornography or other sexually explicit material, as well as forceful witnessing or submission to sex acts.
