If you currently have a family member in a nursing home care facility or are considering doing so, you may have concerns about how they will be treated when you aren’t around. Many nurses are professional, loving, and treat those they take care of like family. It’s crucial for vulnerable or elderly individuals living in a nursing home setting to have individuals who are protective, responsive and caring. Unfortunately, not everyone in the profession will have the same level of compassion, and it is essential to be aware of individuals who seem forceful, dismissive, unkind, or aggressive.
Verbal and emotional abuse can take its toll on mental and emotional health. Family members of nursing home residents may see pre-existing conditions worsen or new ones arise. Sometimes the facility may be understaffed, under-trained, or under-supervised. This can lead to stressful conditions and excessive strain put on the individuals who work there. However, it is still their responsibility to protect the health of the residents living in the nursing home.
