Nursing Home Abuse Cases in Kansas
Nursing home abuse can occur in many ways, including the following:
According to the
National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA), a survey conducted on nursing home residents in 2000 revealed
that 44 percent of those surveyed had been abused and 95 percent had either
been neglected or witnessed the neglect of another resident. The NCEA
also reports that many more incidents of neglect and abuse go unreported
than are brought to light. Because of their frail physical and mental
health, many elderly residents are unable to communicate to others concerning
abusive or negligent conditions.
