Signs of Physical & Emotional Abuse

Unfortunately, physical and emotional abuse in nursing homes is not uncommon. Since elders are sometimes unable or afraid to speak out about the abuse, it's critical that their loved ones keep an eye out for signs that something is awry.

At Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., we help clients understand that there are several actions that may indicate abuse, such as:

  • Forcefully pushing, shoving, grabbing, or picking
  • Yelling insults and demeaning language
  • Making threats
  • Secluding residents from social and leisure experiences

If you believe you or your loved one have been harmed while staying in a nursing home, our nursing home abuse attorneys in Pittsburgh are prepared to help. We've represented countless clients, and we are committed to seeking justice for those who've been abused at the hands of those that are being paid to care for the elderly.
