Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Baby boomers who are not yet considered "elders" will be within the coming years. This generation will soon mean that the population of elders in America is at an all-time high. Unfortunately, as the people of El Paso age, they often become targets of predators seeking to take advantage of them, particularly when they are at their weakest, and reside in a Texas nursing home. Nursing home abuse and neglect in El Paso County is often both a civil and criminal offense, and may appear in many different forms.
According to the Texas Department of Health Care Services (DHCS):
- More than 50% of all complaints in nursing homes were related to poor quality of care
- 18% of all complaints were related to mistreatment or abuse
- 2/3 of all reported deficiencies caused, or could have caused, significant harm to one or more residents in nursing homes
