Senior citizens can be especially vulnerable to neglect and abuse, and many cases go unreported every year. Nursing home neglect occurs if a resident doesn’t receive proper medical, physical or emotional attention that exposes them to harm. Sometimes the neglect escalates to physical, emotional, sexual or financial abuse. In neglect and abuse cases, the first priority is to remove the resident from the facility and then take legal action against the nursing home facility.
