Sexual Abuse in Washington Nursing Homes

Call a Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer in WA: (888) 832-7465

Many instances of nursing home abuse involve mistreatment in multiple forms, including physical, financial, emotional, and even sexual. Elder sexual abuse is defined as non-consensual sexual conduct against an individual over the age of 60.

Examples of elder sexual abuse:

  • Unwanted touching
  • Sexual assault/battery
  • Rape
  • Sodomy
  • Forced nudity
  • Photographing a victim in a sexually explicit manner

Because it is hard for victims to speak up about their own abuse, it is important that family members seek justice on their behalf. If you suspect that a nursing home staff member is sexually abusing your loved one, it is important that you call a Washington nursing home sexual abuse attorney at Schroeter Goldmark & Bender immediately to see what you can do to fight back. We can help you investigate the matter and file a claim to hold the negligent parties accountable.

Case evaluations are provided FREE of charge. Call today.

Know If Your Loved One Is Being Sexually Abused

The elderly are often easy targets for offenders because many elderly victims have difficulty with memory, communication, and are in diminished health. This is why it is up to you as their loved ones to be proactive in recognizing and reporting any symptoms that may indicate whether abuse has occurred.

Your loved one may be suffering from sexual abuse if you notice:

  • Clothing stained with blood
  • Ripped clothing
  • Depression and withdrawal
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Bruising and/or bleeding in the genitals
  • Bruising in the inner thighs, breasts, or buttocks
  • Heightened anxiety and fear of a staff member
