Choosing a nursing home for a loved one can be a challenging decision to make. Nobody ever enters a decision like this without carefully weighing out their options to determine which facility is best for their elderly or disabled family member. When you do finally decide on which nursing home is best, you select it based on an assortment of considerations and you place your trust in the care providers at the facility.

That’s why it’s always a horrifying and shocking discovery to learn that your loved one was a victim of abuse while under the care of a nursing home facility. The guilt that follows can be crushing, but please understand that it’s not your fault.

Recently, a family in Arizona had the same appalling and repulsive discovery of abuse. Hacienda Healthcare was responsible for taking care of a young woman, and they severely failed in doing so. An employee at the facility had raped this profoundly disabled woman and the atrocity was not discovered until she had given birth in December, 2018. The implications of this violation are disturbing; how many other victims were being held at this facility?

Nursing home abuse has many ugly faces and often boils down to an appallingly unkind and malignant person exploiting the vulnerability of a disabled individual or senior citizen. Signs of nursing home abuse may include:
– Cuts or bruises
– Blood on their clothes
– Dehydration or malnourishment
– Dirty clothes/soiled underwear
– Dirty living conditions
– Signs of sexual assault
– Theft of property/identity
