Nursing home residents depend on the workers in their living communities to provide them with daily services and assistance when necessary. However, these workers may take out personal frustrations on the nursing home residents. This abuse may psychologically harm the residents, causing them to feel unsafe in their own home. If this verbal abuse occurs, a resident may have the right to pursue compensation for their suffering.

Types of Verbal Abuse
Like physical abuse, verbal abuse can produce long-term health problems that may interfere with a person’s ability to enjoy life. However, these emotional scars are not usually immediately apparent. As a result, it can be difficult for a person to prove that they are being mistreated in a nursing home.
The following are not allowed by nursing home workers, and may be grounds for a lawsuit:
- Intimidation and threats
- Repeated harassment
- Harmful deceit or lying
- Humiliating comments
These sorts of behaviors are entirely uncalled for and can seriously damage a person’s psychological health.
