Nursing Home Sexual Abuse Attorney in Greenville

We Look Out for You and Your Family

Sexual abuse in a nursing home setting is much like the same abuse committed elsewhere. However, nursing home residents are elderly, and often sickly in mind or body, and have less power to ward off unwanted advances. Unfortunately, statistics reveal that 70% of reported elder sexual abuse occurs in nursing homes, and even still, only 30% of victims report abuse to authorities.

If you know, or suspect, your loved one has suffered sexual abuse while in a nursing facility, our Greenville, SC personal injury lawyer can help you! At Jordan Law Center, we are confident in our ability to fight for the rights of the injured. Don’t wait another minute to take legal action on behalf of your loved one, and begin your case, today.

Defining Sexual Abuse in a Nursing Home

Sexual abuse is any form of non-consensual contact, be it physical or otherwise. Any unwanted sexual advancement counts as abuse, including in situations where the elder is too confused or otherwise unable to give consent.

Types of elder sexual abuse include:

  • Rape
  • Sodomy
  • Sexual coercion
  • Forced nudity
  • Sexual harassment
  • Sexual photography
  • Unwanted and inappropriate touching

Symptoms of Elder Sexual Abuse

For various reasons, many cases of sexual abuse go unreported. In many cases, elders are ashamed of what happened, don’t want to inconvenience their families, or perhaps they fear nobody will believe them. Regardless of the reason, it is very possible an elder who has sustained sexual abuse in a nursing home may try to hide it, but there are signs you can keep an eye out for.

Signs indicating elder sexual abuse may include the following:

  • Infections, or STDs
  • Difficulty sitting or walking
  • Vaginal or anal bleeding
  • Pelvic injuries
  • Torn or blood-stained clothing
  • Depression or mood change
  • Agitation or unreasonable anger
  • Anxiety or panic attacks
  • Unexplained bruises, especially on the thighs, genitals, or breasts

The abuser could be a number of people, but in 81% of reported abuse cases, the abuser was the primary caretaker. Sexual abuse could also be committed by another nursing home resident, someone working in the nursing home, nurses, or visitors.

Protect Your Loved One and Contact Jordan Law Center

When your family member was entrusted to the care of a nursing home you believed you could trust, any harm incurred while under their care is understandably frustrating and difficult to bear. The best thing you can do after discovering your loved one has suffered sexual abuse is to contact authorities, remove your family member from the unsafe environment, and call Jordan Law Center.
