What Does Nursing Home Neglect Look Like?

Understanding early warning signs can be paramount in discovering any neglect before it becomes a nursing home abuse case. Any change in behavior, signs of physical or emotional deterioration, or sexual abuse should be investigated immediately.

Who Might be Responsible for Abuse or Neglect?

The general belief is that the staff is usually responsible for neglect. However, neglect often involves another resident or, less frequently, a contractor or visitor with access to the facility. Nevertheless, the management is responsible for ensuring care in all cases.

Nursing Home Abuse Goes Beyond Physical Harm

Most people think every abuse or neglect case involves physical abuse they can easily see. However, emotional abuse of nursing home residents is common, causing silent pain and suffering. It often manifests as bullying, belittling, or shaming the victim.

Neglect is Not Always Intentional

Elder abuse and the mistreatment of residents is not limited to the actions of a specific staff member. Nursing home negligence can also occur if the care facility is understaffed or lacks necessary supplies.

Client Testimonials

I have known Mr. Brynteson for many years. I first met him in a social setting at a men's prayer group, then later had the privilege to use him professionally on several occasions. Mr. Brynteson has set up two non-profit corporations that I am a part of in record time. His competence, speed of action and knowledge in the area was astounding! I believe that Mr. Brynteson has the integrity that he would not take on any case in which he feels he could not do an exceptional job for his client. I certainly could recommend this gentlemen and am privileged to publicly give him a 5 star rating.

— Dr. Jacob Caraotta

When I finally called Mark Brynteson after being mired in a nasty situation for several months, Mark immediately took charge and directed every reponse on my part. He explained the problems clearly from a legal standpoint and also provided options when they were available. One day when I was quite sick and flat on my back, Mark called to follow up on a problem. When he finished, he said, "Today I'm not on the clock". Under the circumstances, that consideration was highly appreciated.

— Len Salvig
