Recovering Damages for Nursing Home Sexual Abuse
As a way to cut costs, the corporations that own and govern nursing homes reduce resources at their facilities. With a leaner staff working longer hours, sexual predators may find that they have an easier time slipping through unnoticed. Nursing home administrators also frequently fail to perform adequate background checks on potential employees unless the law requires it.
Anyone with a loved one in a nursing home should be aware of the following physical signs of sexual abuse:
- Bruises around the breasts, upper abdomen, or inner thigh
- Bleeding from intimate areas
- Irritation or itching of the genitals.
- Troubles walking or discomfort when sitting
- The presence of a sexually transmitted disease
