Suspect Nursing Home Abuse in Maryland? Report It

By Alpert Schreyer on July 27, 2012

The Maryland Department of Human Resources’s Office of Adult Services provides assistance to elderly people who are suffering the effects of abuse, neglect, and/or exploitation, whether in a Maryland nursing home or in their own homes. If you suspect an elderly loved one is being abused, neglected, or exploited, you may make a report to the Office of Adult Services.

Maryland Reporting Nursing Home Abuse

“Abuse” includes physical, mental, or emotional suffering deliberately inflicted on another person, including an elderly one. “Neglect” typically involves withholding or failing to provide needed care, such as adequate food, water, medications, or help with personal grooming. “Exploitation” involves abuse of an elderly person’s financial or other resources to benefit someone other than the person to whom those resources belong.

If you reasonably believe an elderly person is in danger of harm due to abuse, neglect, or exploitation, you have the option of contacting the Office of Adult Services. Include the name, address, and age of the elderly person; the name, address, and age of anyone you suspect is causing the abusive treatment (if known); the circumstances that make you suspect abuse, neglect, or exploitation; and any other information you believe would help the Office of Adult Services figure out what is happening and put a stop to any abusive or neglectful behavior.

Elder abuse or neglect should never be ignored. For help protecting your loved one, call an experienced Maryland nursing home abuse attorney at Alpert Schreyer today. Our number is (844) 632-7274, and your call is free and confidential.
