(PRWEB) February 26, 2010 -- IQ Nursing Homes is pleased to offer comprehensive nursing home abuse statistics, reports, articles and information on its website. Nursing home abuse is a serious problem throughout the country, and it often goes unreported because the victims cannot communicate that they are being mistreated. By reviewing the resources available at IQNursingHomes.com, friends and family members of nursing home residents can educate themselves about this issue and act as advocates to protect their loved ones.

Nursing home abuse can take many forms, including physical abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse, and emotional abuse. When nursing homes are understaffed or caretakers fail to receive proper training and supervision on the job, seniors may not get the level of care that they need and deserve. The effects of nursing home abuse can range in severity from discomfort to serious injury, and even wrongful death. Bed sores, broken bones from falls, dehydration, and malnutrition are just a few of the life threatening conditions that can result from neglect and abuse in nursing homes.

IQ Nursing Homes includes detailed articles and videos that provide an overview of the types of nursing home abuse, as well as a list of warning signs that may indicate that abuse is taking place. It is important to note that nursing home abuse and neglect can be difficult to detect and may be missed if a concerned family member is not watching out for their elder relative. In some situations, a nursing home resident may be afraid to seek help because of threats made by the abusive staff member. In other cases, the victim may be physically or mentally unable to communicate that he or she is suffering from nursing home abuse.

Visit IQNursingHomes.com today to learn more about nursing home abuse. A national nursing home directory, a database of nursing home and elder care facility ratings, and a guide to choosing the right nursing home are also available to help you ensure that the facility you trust your loved one’s care to is reputable and safe.

If you suspect that a loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, you may want to consider speaking to a nursing home abuse lawyer about how to protect your loved one’s rights. IQ Nursing Homes offers a Free Case Evaluation for those interested in pursuing a potential nursing home abuse lawsuit.
