Defining Elder Abuse
Elder abuse is a term used to refer to any act by an individual that intentionally or negligently exploits an elderly person and brings harm to him or her. Abuse to the elderly can take many forms, including physical abuse, emotional abuse, psychological abuse, sexual abuse, and financial abuse. Legislatures in all 50 states have passed some form of laws that assist with preventing abuse of the elderly.
Understanding Nursing Home Elder Abuse
When abuse occurs to the elderly in nursing homes or other long-term care facilities, it often does not involve just one bad actor; rather, elder abuse at nursing homes and other long-term care facilities often involves numerous care providers and sometimes, non-care providers, who act intentionally or negligently in providing care to a resident that results in harm.
