Experts identify four primary types of nursing home abuse: physical, sexual, emotional, and financial. Victims may display physical injuries or behavioral changes. Physical or sexual abuse can result in bruises, cuts, or welts and damage to personal belongings. Psychological trauma can also arise from physical or emotional abuse, causing agitation or withdrawal. Sudden changes in financial accounts may indicate coercion or fraud. Neglect can be identified through poor hygiene, nutrition, and untreated illness or injury.
