In 2007, 1.3 million elderly people lived in nursing homes. That same
year, there were nearly 20 complaints of abuse reported per nursing
home! It is critical - as the older population in the US increases -
that families and friends of the elderly be aware of the risk factors
for abuse in nursing facilities.
Bachus & Schanker, LLC has compiled the following infographic to create
awareness of the types of abuse Nursing Home residents may be at risk
for, including neglect, emotional, physical, sexual and financial abuse.
