We trust doctors, nurses and nursing home staff to act ethically and provide competent care for our loved ones. When a facility or individual staff member fails to meet the acceptable standard of care, however, nursing home residents can be the victims of terrible abuse.

At Bernheim Dolinsky Kelley, we find this completely unacceptable, and we will fight to get you and your family the justice you deserve. Put our significant power and resources to work. Contact us now, and see what Bernheim Dolinsky Kelley can do for you

Mental and Emotional Trauma in Nursing Homes is a True Problem

Victims of mental or emotional abuse may demonstrate symptoms such as being anxious, depressed, withdrawn, frightened or confused. These symptoms may be difficult to explain and appear to be unrelated to any current activity or company.

The most common forms of mental and emotional abuse include:

  • Verbal abuse
  • Yelling
  • Humiliation
  • Name calling and insults
  • Financial exploitation
  • Undue influence
  • Threats of violence
  • Threats of withholding food, medication or privileges
  • Threats of using restraints

Inadequate staffing is the main reason that nursing home residents suffer mental and emotional abuse. Most nursing homes rely on nurses’ aides for the majority of resident care. Too often, nurses’ aides are inexperienced, poorly trained and overworked. When a workforce like this is responsible for a vulnerable population, abuse is more likely to occur. While all nursing home residents may be at risk, patients with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease are at a greater risk because of their cognitive and mental impairments.
