Nursing home elder abuse can include physical and emotional abuse, sexual assault, insufficient mobility exercises and the inappropriate use of restraints, financial abuse, isolation, adverse drug events, nutritional neglect, verbal intimidation and Eldercide. Eldercide is the premature death of elder nursing home residents due to nursing home neglect and maltreatment.

Alarmingly, abuse and neglect of elders in nursing homes, assisted living and other long-term care facilities occurs frequently and experts estimate that 20% of nursing home neglect and maltreatment cases never get reported. Chances are if there is one reported incident of maltreatment in a nursing home, there may be as many as 5 or more, unreported.

California, including Fresno, along with other states, has specific elder laws developed to ensure the health and safety of nursing home residents and protect elder residents from abuse and neglect.
