Dangers of Nursing Home Abuse Injuries
Nursing home residents cannot care for themselves when they are injured. Typically, they are unable to seek outside medical attention for their injuries. They may be unaware of their injuries or afraid or unable to report them. Additionally, they may have compromised immune systems and be at a very high risk of developing a life-threatening infection.
