Forms of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse can take many forms, including:

  • Verbal
  • Sexual
  • Physical
  • Mental

This is in addition to every nursing home resident’s right to be free from corporal punishment and involuntary seclusion.


Nursing home abuse goes beyond neglect because it includes the element of intention. For the harm to reach the level of abuse, the person who inflicted the abuse must have done so purposefully – intending to cause harm, making nursing home abuse that much more disturbing.
