Nursing home abuse is, unfortunately, something much more prevalent today than it should be. This type of abuse is not uncommon as reports of physical abuse continue to roll in year after year. Many times, we find that the nursing home will try and cover up these types of things, case in point, 75-year-old Helen Love. According to a two-year tracking study by the Investigation Division of the House Government Reform Committee of US nursing homes, an astonishing 1 in every 3 facilities had reports of sexual, physical, or verbal abuse, or neglect likely to cause serious harm to the patients. Since this abuse can be hard to track because the facility might try to downplay the severity, it’s important that these elderly victims have proper advocates that are concerned for their wellbeing.
