In New York, nursing home residents are protected under state and federal laws that guarantee their right to receive proper care and live free from abuse and neglect. 

Nursing home abuse can take many forms, including physical abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, financial exploitation, and sexual abuse. Recognizing the signs of abuse is the first step towards seeking help. Common signs include unexplained injuries, sudden changes in behavior, poor hygiene, and unexplained financial transactions.

  • Right to Report Abuse: Residents and their families have the right to report any suspected abuse or neglect without fear of retaliation. Nursing homes are required by law to investigate and address any complaints.

  • Right to Legal Action: Victims of nursing home abuse have the right to pursue legal action against the abusers and the facility that allowed the abuse to occur. This can include filing a lawsuit to seek compensation for injuries, pain and suffering, and other damages.
