Recovering Damages for Nursing Home Sexual Abuse

As a way to cut costs, the corporations that own nursing homes reduce wages and staff at their facilities. With fewer staff working longer hours, it is much easier for sexual predators to go unnoticed. Sometimes, the low pay ends up attracting unscrupulous individuals. Often, nursing home owners fail to perform background checks on prospective employees unless they are required by law to do so.

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; the presence of a sexually transmitted disease; troubles walking or discomfort when sitting; and irritation or itching of the genitals. The nursing home abuse attorneys at Dreyer Boyajian LLP, are very aware of all the signs of nursing home sexual abuse, and can help families determine if their loved one has become a victim of this crime.
