There are over 1.7 million elderly nursing home residents in our country that are vulnerable to abuse and maltreatment. Nursing home elder abuse can include physical and sexual assault, neglect, inappropriate restraining, financial abuse, isolation, verbal threats, intimidation, wrongful death and adverse drug events.
Research studies published in the American Journal of Medicine last year suggests there are an estimated 1.9 million drug-related problems each year in nursing home facilities, including more than 86,000 fatal or life-threatening problems. Nearly half of these incidents are estimated to be preventable.
