According to the National Center on Elder Abuse, an elder abuse study from 2000 revealed that 44 percent of nursing home residents were abused. Also, 95 percent reported neglect or seeing another resident neglected in a nursing home. Furthermore, the NCEA reports that almost one out of every three nursing homes in the United States received citations for violating federal standards between 1999 and 2001, putting residents at risk or actually resulting in harm. In 2008, more than three million people lived in a U.S. nursing home and it is imperative for residents and their loved ones to recognize and address neglect whenever it takes place.
