How prevalent is nursing home abuse?

Studies have revealed that 9 in 10 of all residents in nursing homes in the United States are not receiving the care and attention they need. In addition, more than 30 percent of nursing homes in the United States have been cited for abuse. These frightening numbers emphasize the importance of frequently visiting your loved one at his or her care facility and watching closely for signs of abuse, including changes in personality and behavior, unexplained bruises or other injuries, falls, bedsores, and malnutrition or dehydration.
