Emotional Abuse in Nursing Homes
Los Angeles Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers Helping Victims
When our loved ones reach a certain age in their life, we are often presented with the decision of whether or not they will continue to provide care themselves or whether they will look to putting them in the care of a reputable nursing home.
This is typically a difficult decision that is paired with considerable thought and care – it is not one that is taken lightly, but rather one that is researched and analyzed. For this reason, should the nursing home facility fail to uphold their responsibility to their patients, it becomes even more personal and more difficult to overcome.
Common Types of Emotional Abuse
Although the ramifications of emotional abuse are not as visible as that of physical abuse, the ramifications are no less serious. This type of nursing home abuse can be difficult to overcome and can cause extreme damage to the victim.
Emotional abuse can incorporate all of the following:
- Verbal degradation
- Threatening and intimidating
- Manipulating the emotions of a patient
- Public humiliation
- Isolation from social settings
If you have reason to believe that your loved one has recently been a victim of emotional abuse at a nursing home facility, it is in your best interests to seek the legal counsel of an experienced Los Angeles personal injury attorney that you can trust.
