Nursing Home Abuse in Maryland

Nursing home abuse occurs anytime someone in an assisted living facility experiences intimidation, unreasonable confinement, willful infliction of injury, or punishment with resulting mental anguish, pain or physical harm. This differs from neglect because abuse is intentional harm whereas neglect causes harm through inaction or indifference to your loved one.

Maryland’s nursing homes are overseen by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and they have strict guidelines in place that these homes have to abide by. Unfortunately, many nursing homes do not follow the rules and are never caught by the department. If you, however, have noticed signs that your loved one is being abused, contact us right away.

The common signs of nursing home abuse include the following, and more:

  • Bed sores
  • Infections
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Wanting to be isolated
  • Fractures, falls, or head injuries
  • Rapid weight loss or weight gain
  • Unclean and unsanitary conditions
