Sexual Abuse in Nursing Homes

Columbus Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers Protecting Your Rights

Nursing home abuse is a horrific epidemic sweeping the nation, as countless residents of nursing homes are subjected to this traumatic form of exploitation. Sexual abuse constitutes any kind of sexual contact or touching which is unwarranted, unwanted, and otherwise occurs by some form of force. One of the most disturbing forms of mistreatment, sexual abuse, happens to both men and women

Abusers take advantage of the situation, often abusing patients who are disabled and thus unable to properly speak up or defend themselves. Our Columbus personal injury lawyers at Rourke & Blumenthal have a long history of pursuing justice in these types of cases, and we are aggressive and relentless in our approach to hold the responsible parties accountable for their horrendous actions.

The following are common signs of nursing home sexual abuse, including, but not limited to:

  • Emotional withdrawal
  • Agitation, anxiety, or depression
  • Difficulty moving or walking
  • Genital bleeding
  • A sudden STD
  • Genital irritation
  • Torn clothing
  • Bruising
  • Paranoia
  • Insomnia

The above signs need to be investigated immediately, as they could be an indication of sexual abuse that your elderly loved one is fearful to speak up about. Our legal team can help conduct a proper investigation to ensure your elderly loved one is not being abused or taken advantage of in their fragile and weak state.
