What Causes Nursing Home Injuries And Death?
According to the State of Montana government website, causes of elder injuries and death are divided into three categories:
- Neglect — This is considered the most common type of abuse. Nursing home neglect basically means failure to act when an elder’s health or safety are in danger. Neglect also includes failure to provide reasonable medical care and treatment.
- Exploitation — This means using an elder’s medical condition or history for personal gain. Examples are stealing money or stealing someone’s identity.
- Abuse — This could be in the form of emotional (verbal threats, bullying or harassment of another person), physical (injuring or hurting another person) or sexual abuse (unwanted advances).
