NURSING HOME NEGLECT/ABUSE/ELDER NEGLECT
Nursing home abuse and elder neglect occur all too often in Florida settings. This can occur in many ways. Several common examples of neglect can include the following:
• Physical abuse
• Withholding of medical care
• Emotional abuse

Many victims are vulnerable and not necessarily able to protect themselves or to express the abuse which has taken place. Sometimes abuse and neglect can result in physical injury or even death.
Common injuries are the following:
