When a family member suspects that a loved one in a nursing home is not being appropriately cared for, it is important to get him or her out of the abusive situation as soon as possible.

While someone does not need to be incapacitated to need to reside in a nursing home, typically, patients in nursing homes are unable to perform basic, daily tasks such as preparing food and feeding themselves, bathing, and taking medications, etc. Unless a family has a place to take their abused loved one too where they can get this kind of care, they usually cannot remove their loved one from the abusive environment of the nursing home.
