Answer:

If you suspect nursing home abuse, then start looking for physical evidence. Examine your relative’s body and look for broken bones, cuts, scars or sores. If you see evidence of physical abuse ask the patient what happened. Remember, the patient might not admit the abuse at first. If necessary, talk to staff members of the home, the staff supervisor or the attending physician. You even have the right to see the patient’s medical chart. For signs of neglect, carefully inspect the patient’s body and note if the resident seems dirty or malnourished. Make sure the patient’s room is clean. Take note of any signs of depression or drastic changes in the resident’s typical behavior.
