Entrusting the care of a loved one to a nursing home is a difficult decision. When that trust is broken through abuse or neglect, the consequences can be devastating. If you suspect your loved one is suffering from nursing home abuse in Kingston, NY, O’Connor & Partners is here to help you take action and protect their rights.

Understanding Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse can take many forms, including:

  • Physical Abuse: Unexplained bruises, broken bones, bedsores, or signs of restraint.
  • Emotional Abuse: Verbal harassment, threats, intimidation, or humiliation.
  • Neglect: Malnutrition, dehydration, unsanitary conditions, or lack of basic care.
  • Financial Exploitation: Unexplained withdrawals, missing possessions, or changes in financial documents.

Warning Signs

Recognizing the signs of abuse is crucial:

  • Changes in Behavior: Sudden withdrawal, agitation, fearfulness, depression, or anxiety.
  • Unexplained Injuries: Be alert to any injuries your loved one cannot explain.
  • Weight Loss or Malnutrition: Sudden weight loss, dehydration, or poor hygiene can indicate neglect.
  • Unsanitary Living Conditions: Dirty rooms, soiled bedding, or a lack of basic hygiene are red flags.
