New Report Says Nursing Home Abuse and Violence Between Patients is Common

A new study by Cornell University found that while the traditional view of abuse in nursing homes involves staff harming residents, residents may actually have more to fear from other residents.

Of the 747 nursing home residents involved in the study, 42 were involved in 79 different incidents in which the police were called to nursing homes. In most instances, the study’s authors explained, the cases involved two residents physically assaulting each other. Triggers included competition over a seat in front of a TV, unwanted touching or a resident wandering into another’s room.
