Michigan Lawyers Discuss Signs of Sexual Abuse in Michigan Nursing Homes

Dementia related resident-to-resident sexual abuse is the most common type of sexual abuse there is in a nursing home. Our Michigan nursing home lawyers file lawsuits on behalf of residents who are sexually abused at a nursing home. Residents who are weak and unable to resist abuse or unable to communicate are an easy target for sexual abuse by another resident. When sexual abuse occurs from another resident, this also provides a basis for a nursing home lawsuit.

According to a 1996 Medicaid Fraud Report, 10 percent of all nursing home physical abuse cases are a result of sexual abuse. Sexual abuse is defined as non-consensual sexual contact with a nursing home resident.

There are many common signs that sexual abuse is taking place in a nursing home. Some of the most common warning signs include:

• Bruising

• Irritation or Itching

• Bleeding

• Trouble Walking

• Sexually Transmitted Infection
