Nursing Home Abuse Centre
The Nursing Home Abuse Center (NHAC) was founded on the principles of dignity and respect for some of the most vulnerable citizens, seniors. Wrongful Death at Nursing Homes The term wrongful death is used to describe situations where a person has died because of the behaviour or conduct of another agency or individual. Wrongful death is a legal term but is one used in the nursing home setting, as it applies to some deaths occurring in this environment. Wrongful death lawsuits are usually filed in cases involving neglect or abuse in a nursing home setting, as well as other situations where the elderly has died because of the misconduct of another where death was completely avoidable.
Nursing Home Abuse Guide
Learn More about Abuse - Over 3.2 million adults living in nursing homes and other long term care facilities in the U.S. As many as 40 percent of all adults will enter a nursing home at some point during their lives and as the U.S. population ages, the number of nursing home residents is expected to grow. Many of these elders are well-cared for but many may be the victims of abuse. Elder abuse, particularly when it involves a patient in a residential care facility, can be difficult to detect and for every reported case of abuse, more than five cases may go unreported.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
Obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD, is an anxiety disorder that generally causes extreme discomfort. Sufferers are often riddled with persistent and recurrent impulses, thoughts and images that are unwanted. According to the National Institute for Mental Health, OCD affects more than 2 million adults in the United States. Severe cases of OCD can cause an extreme amount of distress, and the disorder can dramatically interfere with a person’s daily life.
