Abuse And Neglect Can Take Many Forms
Elder abuse and neglect are not always blatant, and the signs can be hard to notice. Neglect, elder abuse or vulnerable adult neglect that occurs at a nursing home or rehabilitation center may include failure to treat certain conditions such as infections and pressure sores. As with other facilities, failing to meet the standard of care can result in serious injury.

- Failure to provide medical treatment or proper care
- Withholding food or water
- Neglecting personal hygiene and basic needs
- Sexual and physical abuse
