Nursing Home Neglect: January 2016 Archives

What is the difference between nursing home abuse and neglect?

This blog has previously discussed the signs and symptoms one can look for that may be indicative of the abuse of a loved one who is in a long-term care facility or nursing home. While lay persons often use the words 'abuse' and 'neglect' interchangeably in such instances, as with many words, the terms have separate meanings in a legal context. Further, there is a third term, 'exploitation,' that also is reportable to the Connecticut Department of Social Services, and might be actionable in court.
