Elder Neglect Law

Elder Neglect

Elder Neglect Law:

Elder Neglect occurs when a member of a nursing home deprives an elder of care, which comes in the way of maintaining physical and mental health. Most elders, especially vulnerable ones, are at a high risk for elder neglect. The neglect is regarded as being elder abuse and includes the refusal or failure of providing proper food, shelter, health care or protection.

Elder Neglect Legal Issues:

Elders, disabled or not, should have their basic requests taken care of by the people who care for them. This includes food, water, medicine, grooming, social and physical motivation. If they fail to provide elders with any type of expected care, it could be regarded as elder neglect. Because nursing homes are not well-staffed and the staff is generally underpaid, elders typically get abused. An incident or recurring neglect may be grounds for the elder's family to being claims against the nursing home. If elder neglect is established, the victim and their family may be awarded monetary compensation and the nursing home could lose their certification.
