Nursing home abuse and negligence is becoming a more common problem throughout the United States.

Discussing your case with a Kingston NY nursing home abuse attorney at Ryan Roach and Ryan can allow for you to determine your next option and the next few steps you should take.
Different types of abuse can be found in a nursing home abuse case, including:
- Emotional Abuse
This is one of the most common forms of abuse that is found in nursing homes. This type of abuse may have the resident feeling anxious or even withdrawn.
- Sexual Abuse
Workers may take advantage of bed ridden residents for their own pleasure. Bruises may form on the patient's arms, legs, or face as a result of sexual abuse.
- Physical Abuse
Many different acts of abuse can come in a physical form. Hitting residents with their hands or objects like belts or a hair brush is common and can lead to bruising as well.
