Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect in Birmingham, Alabama

Millions of elderly Americans depend on others for their daily basic needs and reports indicate that these vulnerable elderly people are often victims of abuse and neglect at the hands of the very people entrusted with their care. In nursing homes and assisted living centers across this country our parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles are suffering emotional, verbal, physical and sexual abuse by uncaring, overworked and inadequately trained staff at these facilities.

Some frequent signs of elder abuse and neglect are poor personal care, chronic sores and infections, unexplained bruising, the use of sedation medication when unwarranted, and the unnecessary use of physical restraints. The unseen effects of verbal or emotional abuse and intimidation are just as damaging to the residents of nursing homes and assisted living centers who are often either unable or unwilling to tell their families about these abuses that are perpetrated on a daily basis for fear of further abuse.
