Abuse in nursing homes can also manifest in the patients disposition. They may be fearful, anxious and depressed.
Nursing Home Neglect
Nursing home neglect, aka nursing home negligence, is caused by several factors such as being understaffed, bad hiring decisions and having poorly trained caregivers. Negligence can result in the resident eloping or wandering off, falling, not being given their medications, food and liquids. Their overall hygiene can suffer as well.
