When employees of nursing homes intentionally cause injury to their patients, it's referred to as nursing home abuse. What's more, this type of abuse in nursing facilities may refer to deliberate or accidental injury.

Unfortunately, nursing home abuse is common due to inadequate personnel, training, and staff turnover or exhaustion. In turn, employees may take their frustrations out on the residents. In fact, according to the World Health Organization's data on elder abuse, one-third of caregivers have neglected or abused their elderly patients.
