Elderly people are sometimes placed in nursing homes to be cared for when families can no longer provide the care their loved ones need. While most nursing home patients are taken care of, some residents are actually harmed and sexually abused. Watch this video to find out how sexual abuse can even take place in a nursing home.

Nursing homes often run lean. When they don’t have the proper staff to patient ratio, residents aren’t supervised like they should. This can result in one resident being sexually abused by another resident or at the hands of a nursing home staff member. Sadly, elder sexual abuse can result in bruising, lacerations, emotional injuries, and other damages.
