Safety at the Nursing Home

When to take action …

If you feel that a resident is in fact being abused, notify the nursing home administrator immediately. Federal law requires administrators to report claims of abuse to state agencies, whose investigators will be assigned to the case. However, if the resident appears to be in immediate danger, contact the police or any local hospital to have the resident removed from the facility until arrangements can be made with another care provider. Usually, the very report of abuse prompts the facility to immediately remove the abusive perpetrators, but if it is unclear who committed the abuse, more investigation is required, and the resident is better off being away from the facility.

… and how
